I cling to the acts of creating and dancing with every fiber of my being. Dance has always been where I find comfort and strength, and the only time I allow myself to be fully vulnerable in front of others. I am able to struggle my way through an internal fight and emerge with more clarity than I entered with.
The theme of finding a safe space - not a physical one, but a metaphorical place of comfort and peace - within our own bodies and minds has been pushing itself around in my head, flip-flopping down my spine, and settling in my core. I'll be creating a dance piece over the next few months that explores this idea, this feeling of having a safe space. I encourage you to consider this idea and let me know what this safe space feels like to you.
