welcome again | Setting The Barre
It’s been so lengthy since I’ve written right here, the entire running a blog platform has modified. Excuse me whereas I relearn the right way to do one thing that I as soon as did did instinctively…
There’s a lot to compensate for, if I attempt, I’ll by no means begin. So as a substitute, let’s simply dive in proper the place we’re, we could? We’re one month out from the tip of what seems like the primary season. No, I haven’t moved firms or cities…I’ve been dancing with FBP for 10 (11? 12?) seasons now, however this was the primary full season because the you-know-what. Our first full season avoiding the plague, our first full season underneath new management, with troves of latest dancers, with a brand new board president, with a brand new appreciation for area to maneuver and a barre that isn’t hooked up to a kitchen counter…
Every little thing has modified. Cue the clichés! I do know I’ve written it right here so many occasions, you’d suppose I’d discovered the lesson: “Change is the one fixed.” However all change is just not equal. Some things- even massive things- change slowly, seaside cliffs being licked away by the tide, retreating nearer to the shore with every shift in season. Different adjustments come abruptly, with out warning. No interval of consideration, time to really feel the change approaching and alter. These are the types of adjustments that really take a look at us.
Navigating the entire newness has been its personal problem. However with my former familiarity additionally got here years and years in a profession infamous for turning inward, focusing alone physicality, my very own artistry. So what have I discovered about myself?
I wish to come again to this area and start pouring that out. Welcome again, in case you’d like to affix me to find out.
