Iceland!-September 2012

An amazingly beautiful country,- Iceland.

I  found myself there in September teaching at the Arts Academy to a new generation of dancers and choreographers.  I also had the pleasure of working with the modern dance company, and the organization “Danse Atelier”.  My experiences were, as always, deep and joyful, difficult and fun,- all workshops have their own flavor as the group determines so much the direction. The information;words, repeated many times in these past over 20 years, maintain a richness and resilience.  The work I do/teach always teaches me as well as teaches my students. Many hours a day to a vibrant an rich community, and hours of work time in the studio brought about a new and still in progress solo. Green Space in LIC, NY gave it its first showing on September 16. Its growth will continue. I am now in Berlin, teaching another wonderful group, and want to take the time to thank my teachers = Fritz Smith and Susan Klein.
