“I believe we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living, the principles are the same. In each it is the performance of a dedicated precise set of acts, physical or intellectual, from which comes shape of achievement, a sense of one’s being, a satisfaction of spirit.
One becomes in some area an athlete of God.”
The soul in motion will support the dancer in re-arranging what is familiar. We continue to seek our source from the everyday. We are always a part of the dance, especially in the everyday.
We view our relationship to all things as having value and significance. In our movement practice we put aside the particular circumstances of personal history. Live the mystery.
The soul in motion will set conditions where truth stands.
The soul in motion will place the participants in a no-mind land where space and shape become landscapes of discovery.
What we discover is that there is the suggestion of a 360 degree person. The dance will immerse in this completed circle psychology.
The dance makes no particular claim to how it views itself, it remains open to any and all possibilities.
It reserves judgment and replaces it with wonder.
It accepts the invitation of spinning wheels of perception.
It avoids the hazard of becoming stuck in its own point of view.
The dance viewpoints orbit and rotate.
The soul in motion takes place in the depths of a liquid core.
Like wind that can be felt but remains unknown in its origin or destiny.
So with our movement moments. We listen to the movement spiraling and rumbling within and we remain curious as to its origin and its destiny. This is the trance of dance.
This is what getting out of our way and into the stream of things, as they appear, indicate. This is truth of the dance dancing us. Being danced.
