Feel Your Body Move
The American Dance Festival was holding classes and workshops at Duke when we were there in July. Young, thin, talented - things I am not, or never have been. I love dance, but I have all of the grace of a camel trying to stand on a waterbed. Not a pretty sight, but a joy. I like to watch, but I love to move.
Are we our bodies, or are merely temporary occupants in a body? Deep questions - no clear answer. But while we are here, we might as well dance. Find your rhythm, move in ways that feel good to you. Dance to your drummer. Don't worry about what it looks like, only how it feels to move in the world.
When was the last time you danced?
