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

Keeping Dance Alive, St. Croix Arts Community Outreach

 In 2017, I was at home in Washington DC bedridden and removed from everything that I knew.  My life as a Dancer as I knew it....was no longer. I could barely walk, performing menial tasks around the house was a burden for me. I often felt faint and dizzy. My nervous system had taken a hard hit from the brutal cold winter of Chicago. The winds  shook my bones and my days of job hunting, street performing in the Chicago O'Hare Airport for bills and just aimlessly walking in the snow drove my body into a state of shock. PH. D Chenzira Davis Kahina & Ms. Charlita Charlita Schuster,  great friends discussing a paining in the UVI Cultural Center After my last gig as a Broadway Dancer, there was nothing more for me in the Windy City. I'd returned home with question in my mind and heart as to how I would move forward. I was diagnoses with a rare chronic pain condition, Trigeminal Neuralgia. The International Association for Blacks in Dance had just revamped its organization, was g

What is Black Girl Magic?

The Makers arise early this morning to receive a local news reporter in Alberquerque KQRE Channel 13 doing a feature story on the Keshet Center for the Arts. I had the privilege of leading the dancers in a GYROKINESISⓇ seated class. It turned out to be just what we all needed to prepare our minds and bodies for a day of finalizing material and preparing for this evening's tech run. I took more time on my knees to acknowledge Most High and restore my spiritual and mental welfare.  I'm learning the ins and outs of social media marketing--balancing it out with my pursuits in academia, business planning, outreach, work life all while planning a vacation. WHEW! Talk about being a real Woman with real things going on: All At Once.
