Wren LaFeet and Denay Joy Woodman
$60 At the Door
The world of micro-dance is a form of magic. It relies on a delicate interplay of trust and surrender. Whether we’re dancing switch or in the polarity of lead and follow, there is always an exchange of energy taking place. Our job is to listen deeper than we ever have, to ourselves, to our partner, to the music, to our connection with the earth, and respond with openness – with the fluidity of water – to the changes in the structure within which we dance.
As Bruce Lee says, “Water can flow, or it can crash. Be water my friend.”
This follow up to Micro Magic will be a continuation of our practice in listening, responding and surrendering the need to “do” anything. Fine tuning our subtlest movements, being picky about what we express from the music. Letting the initiation come from an internal feeling as much as from an external stimulous.
