How can we know the dancer from the dance?
~William Butler Yeats
The Spirit of Dance Evolution is a composite of all the characteristics we the dancers contribute by our presence here. We each add something unique and special which would be missing without any single one of us showing up. The Dance contains and becomes everything we bring forth and offer to the space, out of the realm of potential, into the collective movement of life.
It’s an experience where we can lose ourselves for awhile, becoming one with the music, the space, the essence of the dance, becoming the dance itself. Allowing ourselves to be swept up into the emotion of the music and unified with our fellow dancers, we come full circle by the close, landing in our own bodies, coming back to our senses, rediscovering ourselves in new ways.
When we enter the dance, we are carried forward by the momentum of all the dances and dancers who have come before. We flow with the patterns of the moment and shift in some way the direction this Spirit moves. We shape the Dance and the Dance shapes us. Together we are The Spirit of the Dance.
You are welcome to join us in our full bodied Spirit this Sunday!
With Love & Gratitude,
