Sunday Dance ~ Freestyle With Andy K. says
One of my favorite things about our dances is the freedom to move however I want. I believe spontaneity and creativity are bold and powerful ways to live our lives. It is wonderful to have the resilience and wherewithal to respond to life's challenges by using these characteristics of a freestyle dancer: spontaneity and creativity. We can bound beyond personal obstacles, or sometimes fall with flair, but the failures are just part of the process when any movement is allowed. Freestyle.

When I go into the door at our Sunday dance, there is now an extra spring in my step, because I have cultivated this habit, gradually becoming more articulate, playful, and imaginative on the dance floor. This feels like an inevitable consequence of encouraging one another to dance FREESTYLE. We agree to accept and not cast judgement upon one another's movements. It is a simple concept, but it is highly effective. By just allowing each other to be as we are and dance as we dance, we permit and encourage freedom of expression through creative movement. Dancing feels great. It seems like the more you do it, the better it gets.

I feel as if I may be talking in a circle, making the theme of this week's dance Freestyle, when ultimately that is a element in almost every ecstatic dance. Maybe the best thing I can say is to invite you to feel the experience yourself.

So come on out and dance!
