Yes. i have been negligent in my writings. So much has happened this year, especially these 3-4 months, and more now with amazing change and growth with people coming together. It is SO INSPIRING and UPlifting, challenging and heartbreaking all at once. It is important time and will ultimately make the world a better place.
Even when I was young -7, 8 years old often criticized for being too idealistic – . Alas, I am still as such, hopeful for community, dynamic change, possibilities.
Recently, I was to post my “happening now” travels/tour to Europe – Vienna, Berlin and London–Taipei in June, my performances in NORTHHAMPTON, WIP in March, – all which have been adjusted, rescheduled, or virtual. Many events of the 7 annual QueensboroDance Festival, which occur outside in Queens in Parks and other open areas, have had to be accomodated for the Virtual. My VIRTUAL DATE IS MONDAY JULY 21 4pm!

Everything has moved around, and I have been doing all my teaching on – quite a challenging feat for me and my work, as I thrive on touch, the group and their energy in my classes. – I look to these things for guidance and direction on where as a class we should go. Over the past 3 months my skills (much much teaching ) have increased in this method of teaching and although challenging, has brought much clarity in my ëyes¨ and my left brain. I do find it tiring but I am very grateful for the at least visual contact with people I know and love, and meeting new people from around the world – a GIANT PLUS of the use of the internet. My device offers its own challenges, it being an IPAD. I have had the IPAD drop on its face with much yelling from the students (smile) “WE CAN”T SEE YOU”.. plus flipping through pages of people on occassion with Movement Research – 85 people sometimes with only 9 on my screen at time. Still, there are many upsides to this situation.
Month 3 1/2. teaching almost everyday – Love seeing the faces and smiles, kitchens, pets, childrens, family, etc as well as and bodies of the many beautiful people who come to class.- it warms my heart and soul, and helps me to stand on my feet. Even without the energy of the bodies, feeling both connected and so far away, I am moved,- it is the highlight of my days almost 90 days. I stretch inside myself to see more specifics of the moving bodies, the deep connections. My intentions – my teachings – grounding, being together, time for the mind to release the tension of this now we are in….friends see each other, and people from the past many many years ago join with and meet new. I feel it is so important to connect with everyone by name -and watch with great attention. The tiny important details of movement, addressing by name. It is a tiny thing but it is what humanity is – being together, being present. I still try for my silly jokes – still works!
