Going to dance class is like going to work. It's an incubator for research and communication through movement and ideas. It's a community. It's a dancer's currency. It's the vehicle from which creative practice springs. It's a hot house, a place of meeting and sharing. It's an art class, a jam, a performance. It's all of these things. A phrase of movement is a sentence that is said out loud. A musical phrase which is danced. It's a complex mathematical problem. It's an expression. It's a song passed from one to another or a story being retold. It's a meditation. It's nothing but gust of air. An ocean current.
