The week between December 24th and January 2nd is often referred to as "the dead week."
Two major holidays occur within a matter of days.
Most kiddos have off from school.
Many people don't want to be at work, or aren't.
Duration of sunlight gets a little bit longer everyday, but winter has just officially started.
One year ends. Another begins.
It's a time of transition.
It's my hope that the dancer in you will take a moment (or 32 minutes) during this time of transition to
1) remember the Joy of dance
2) Connect with your imagination, your muscle memory, and your breath
3) pay attention to both your physical and mental Wellness
4) take advantage of this guided practice to explore your own Kinesthetic story
This practice is also focused on physically transitioning within the confines of a traditional ballet barre. I often say that I'm "bad" at transitions and that's why I practice them so heavily in my work. I've written that the world could be healed through plies.
Let's start with one dance and one dancer.
Let's start with you and this Break at the Barre.
