The Beauty of Rehearsal

Coming together with Maggie to rehearse Joan Nicholas-Walker’s piece “Who, Two” is wonderful.  Securing time to dance with one another is precious in and of itself. The fact that our motivation to rehearse a commissioned work of our company is extraordinary in many ways.  It’s a level of maturity in my career that I could not have imagined when stepping in and out of ballet and modern classes as a teenager. To more rehearsals with this beautiful individual whom I am lucky to call my dance partner and co-pilot in dance production/presentation.
