Merilyn Jackson has been a long-time writer of dance in Philly and the larger dance scene. She knows her stuff.
So, when I give your paper back with some suggestions, questions for clarity and grammatical marks, it's not because I don't like you. Writing about dance is hard. Thinking about dance is hard. Dance is hard. But that's why we do what we do.
Keep plugging away... at the barre, on the floor, and at your computers and notebooks. It takes time and practice.
I'll join you.
