Welcome again to my blog and dance sketchbook! To repeat; as of right now, I’m not considering these films performances. The goal is not entertainment. The goal is mainly to play, and make consistent work while exploring my relationship to nature, being out doors, and what that brings up for me through movement.
If you would, please take a moment to comment and tell me what moment in this video stood out to you the most. Or if you're quite short on time just leave me an emoji so I know this reached you.
I'd be so appreciative if you'd share the video, share this page, and if you feel so inclined leave a monetary note of appreciation so I can continue this work.
If you have suggestions of where to film future videos (Denver area or not) or topics you'd like me to cover in these posts, click here to tell me about them!
I don't know that I feel overly interested in saying much about this piece. I will say the location is very dear to me and I was quite pleased that there was no cloud cover this chilly November morning. I suppose... I did get a few comments about the cozy choice of clothing and how that was surprising in the fieldwork session. Needless to say, I've been on the hunt for fun dance sweaters ever since. You can expect more sweaters in future videos.
I'll leave you with the dance video that makes me think of. Enjoy.
PS. I love the cover of this song. Gets me in the gut every time.
