“To be astonished is one of the surest ways of not growing old too quickly.”
— Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette
Immediately after reading this, I received an email from Johannah discussing her experience in class this past Friday.
Johannah has been taking class with me since I started teaching in 2003, and the Friday class has been a struggle for her at times: I don’t always use music, there is very little instruction, and sometimes there is a minimal amount of big muscle movement (i.e.. leaping, jumping, locomoting, spinning, swooping).
A question that continually comes up for Johannah about this particular class is, “Is this really dance?”
