Look at my gorgeous dancers. I ordered them all NUN tee shirts. I can’t wait to work with them again. Such fiery spirits. And so full of light and love for each other. Best part of this whole thing might have been seeing these young strong women work together, support one another and just enjoy the process. I had my ups and downs. Could have done better the last night. But those are the breaks! Every performance is different. And according to audience feedback, no one was the wiser. In fact feed back was solid gold from both colleagues and students, though the tech people knew I’d totally mixed up my script Sunday and the dancers, they were pros and held in all together.

I am hooked. I am looking forward to getting some documentation from the venue for now this is what we have, and memories! Today re-recording and editing video to start outreach to new dancers for the Sagehen performance. This will be different, outside, and in the place that inspired the whole work, and maybe trajectory of my entire life and practice. Stay tuned in.
