Backing into the corner of the studio so you have plenty of space to launch into the air.
Eyeing the wide-open floor that will soon be yours, and yours alone.
Plotting whatever leap sequence is to come.
Finally the person in front of you preps, leaps and is out of your way.
And you take command of the room, and then the air.
For a split second.
For a split second, you are airborne, not tied to the ground. Wouldn’t everyone, even if you are not a dancer, like to experience that?
As dancers, we have defied gravity for thousands of seconds.
