On being an Expressive:
It is dancing that gets me there. I don’t know where there is or if it is a different place every time. I don’t always get there. I need somewhere to go. I need other people. I need to be able to go somewhere that is not a place place.
“Jmy’s gonna dance” is a blessing to the studio transformation happening this July. A tribute for the last 7 plus years of moving and being in this space, dancing with myself, so many other people, performing, crying, napping, practicing everything. I will miss rubbing on the beautiful floor tho I will know it is there under the new floor.
I dance to flower. I dance to move my pelvis. Moving my pelvis feels good, sexual, powerful, taboo and part of human tradition. Dancing for me is a divine act.
