"b" is for....


As a dance teacher that focuses on the principals of ideokinesis, I am always thinking about the bones.

As a dancer/performer, am I often intrigued by having my movement initiate from the bones (in fact, the current piece I am performing with Dandelion, "Spinal Fluid," is all about moving from the bones).

And, just a little tidbit, as an "above the knee amputee", I have less bones than I started out with. (I'm not exactly sure how many less, but I believe it to be 30-1/2).
