Day 29 of Firsts: Participate in Improvisational Dance Workshop

30 Jan

There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good. ~Edwin Denby

I’m not really a dancer. Improvisational dance?? Really outside my comfort zone. Still I had a couple friends who said I had to try the Friday night Group Motion dance workshop in Philadelphia for a First. My friend Loraine Ballard Morrill went with me.

The music is live. You pay 20 dollars to move creatively with the group that’s been meeting like this for over 40 years!

Sorry, no video of me. Loraine thought she got some, but must not have turned on the camera. We discuss our adventure.

I eventually got into it. I swayed, I skipped, I aped other dancers. I don’t know what I did but at some point I started to trust I was safe and enjoyed.  The group talks after the dance.

A very interesting night. I met such nice warm people who guided and welcomed me into their dance. All I can say is I left happy and relaxed and felt good about the world.
