There’s something about stepping into the studio that awakens creativity. You may notice yourself standing or walking differently, adopting a “dance class” persona in your body’s movements. During this time of dancing at home, have you noticed any of that embodiment in your home practice?

I see it when we sit on the floor to stretch and dancers’ spines stretch a little longer. I see it as the music comes on and the dancers move as if the music is flowing through their bodies. I feel it in myself when I stand in preparation waiting for an exercise to begin. (I also notice this spark of creativity when I start to run out of space and have to figure out in the middle of a combination how to not kick the couch or the wall.)

Studying dance has broad impacts in our lives outside the studio and helps mold us into dedicated, thoughtful and creative humans. This month, I invite you to notice where your creativity shows up for you at home.

Reflections

Our summer programs are underway!

  • We started our weekly Serendipity class, exploring creative movement from our homes.
  • Our teen dance camp starts the last week of July (there’s still time to register – details below!)
  • COterie DAnce Performance Opportunity dancers are meeting every day for class and rehearsal, to create a virtual performance.
  • We’re halfway done with our Adult Division July series (sign up for August now!)

Thank you for dancing with us and joining us in this exploration of dancing at home!
