Each and every day, I lose myself in the immediacy of the moment, find myself in the joy of the movement. Each and every day, I learn more and more...and, within that new knowledge, realize that I have so much farther to travel.

False Creek Improvisations

Last week I did some dancing on False Creek, near the marina.

This is awesome. I've kinda been hating that I haven't really been able to do any studiowork recently (only really been dancing at home but the spaces are pretty small there) but this video has made me decide to try just dancing outside. I've sort of done it a few times but I felt a little weird about it. I think I'll go back and try it again. I forgot how much fun it was.
