Day 5: Keshet Makers Experience HUMP DAY

Today, I feel like dust. [Like Job]

I began the day with the intent of GYROKINESISⓇ and suddenly forgot all about the sequences. So, I just moved. I realized that I didn't recognize myself or my body anymore....I'd told my body to do so many things imprinted codified techniques, terminology and repertoire but I didn't know where to start. I looked in the mirror and saw all of the appropriate identifiers: Woman, Black, Dancer, Afro....and so on....I decided I didn't want to take time a decipher what all of that meant. I had moments of frustration about moving in the familiar but thought of another Maker here and was inspired to break from those constricting places and keep twirling. Because that is what was happening....spinning around and around like Michael in Alonzo King LINES Ballet--trying to catch up to my own speed, thinking about how Lion King rejected me because I was too wild.

Did, I tell you about my dream? I found myself on some sort of school bus with LIL Wayne as the driver...Special Real Special. What I've learned in facing my emotions these past days is that it doesn't matter the pain the hurt the bad experiences--we should never allow ourselves to be overcome by the state of Anger.

I look forward to this day and all that is to come. I'm most excited about the business classes, that fact that I'm being provided with free information within my field is a Blessing. I look forward to sitting down and taking the time to build my financial plans for the future. God is GOOD <3

Yes, Work, Get Your LIFE. Street/Dance Workshop Jacob's Pillow 2020 NYC

My Life at the Pillow..." ~by JR Glover Today was a Pillow Day. As an Alumni, I traveled North to help facilitate and support the Recruitment Tour amidst other beautiful dancing bodies. It's amazing to see how we have all grown through the years as Dancers, Creatives, Choreographers, Directors and lifelong students. Even more, it's inspiring to know that we are all keeping at it--pursuing Excellence and honing our craft day by day. What was meant to be a standby experience turned out to be a Full Dance Day for me. I give thanks to my peers who encouraged me to dance. It was a risk--knowing that I had not danced or taken a technique class proper in several months. However, due to the nature of GYROKINESIS as an instructor, I never lost body awareness, posture, alignment etc. So it was just a matter of tipping over the edge again to see where my body goes....and catching it again. It was a necessary challenge in fact, with the chronic pain of Trigeminal Neuralgia and C

it's still Chocolate City: Local Adventure to the Gallery

Although Travel--for me is a way of LIFE. Every day can be made an adventure if You Make it. Just know that there is something to learn and grow from through each of life's experiences...it's Amazing. It's us who has just got to show up and LIVE It. A walk around the neighborhood, a trip to the Mail Box, or nearby Corner Store or just stepping foot outside of your 4 WALLS to STRETCH can feel Humane. ((Quarantine Blues)) The Weather in DC is beginning to change. Flowers are in Bloom--Cherry Blossoms. The Air is Sweeter, Warmer. And with the successful return of Black Business in the Anacostia neighborhood area Saturday, March 20, 2021, I stepped outside my home to support the movement.
