I like dance, which is sweaty, gasping and short of breath. Screaming, laughing, crying, eye contact. Jumping, repetition, rhythm. Intense, raw, bold. In your face, fully, with the whole body, in motion.

For me dance is an opportunity to open a can of worms, deal with personal issues, communicate with others. A channel to be seen, heard, to challenge myself. Challenge others. A possibility to dare, remove shame, expand life.
