Dear Dance Student: Words of Wisdom from an Older Dancer by Mom’s New Stage
~:: Mom’s New Stage ::~
In dance years I am approximately 107. It means that with all my responsibilities, I rarely get to take class. If I do, I need a careful warm-up beforehand to avoid injury. A strenuous combination might leave me longing for the paramedics. As painful both physically and emotionally as this may be, I have a new perspective on the art form that has defined my life. Finally, I think I have mastered the dance lessons I’ve been studying since I was a child; I have found balance. This little piece is for dancers everywhere, whether they dance on stage, in a studio, or with joy and abandon in the comfort of their own living room.
