Earthquake, shimmy-shake, ground break, awake. Initiates from the feet. Weighted by gravity. Instinctual, disinhibited, organic.
Float, fly, soar, more... Initiates from the breath. Dependent upon the stable foundation of Earth. Balanced, risky, ethereal, flighty, soft.
Launch! Attack! Whip, flicker, zap! Ignites from the guts & core. Burns through the blood and explodes outward. Emotive, ferocious, hawt.
Ssssnakey & sinuousss. Fluid muscular contraction. Coil. Channel. Control. Weighty splash. Thunderous crash! Still, calm pool.
Slice, stab, dice, jab. Linear muscular movement. Precise & placed. Intricate & ornate. Final touch: stage presence.
Body & health, breath & inspiration, passion & expression, flexibility & control, discipline & polish. Woven together into DANCE.
