Words by Becca
Dancing Our Blueprint
The statement ‘tell me who you are without telling me what you do’ has been swirling around my mind and stopping me in my tracks for a few weeks.
I’m yet to reach an ‘answer’ of sorts as my response has been more of a ‘feeling’ rather than something I can articulate in word form.
Who am I? Who are you? Who are we? Why does it matter?...
track OF THE MONTH
Whether it is the original of this song or a cover, there is no doubt that this song will sing so deeply to so many, particularly those in our community.
This song has also been swirling in my mind these last few weeks (see our newsletter for reference)..
Please enjoy this beautiful cover of a very beautiful song...
Cosmic Dancer / Valerie June
Jarod K Anderson
Our blood is red because of the iron we inherited from the Earth.
Iron to bind the oxygen from trees and phytoplankton.
Our blood and breath are hand-me-downs.
The landscape is not scenery.
It’s family. Notice the resemblance.
Our blood is mostly water.
Iron to bind oxygen, built using the energy of sunlight.
Water. Earth. Air. Fire.
You may feel separated from the natural world,
but just look at what you are.
Look at how you live.
You are not born to this place. You are born of this place.
Take one square meter of your bedroom,
of the deepest abyss of sunless sea,
of the brutal emptiness of interstellar space.
Put them side by side and see the harmony.
They are all children of the same natural laws.
Our bodies speak of contradiction.
Bones and soft tissue. Teeth and lips. Sensitive resilience.
What strong family resemblance we share
with the landscapes that shaped us.
Wind and stone. Rivers and oaks.
This old dance of opposing forces
Creating a unified whole
We are a community driven organisation celebrating movement, music and the medicine of life.
Our purpose for being and the fuel behind our creation is to share the wonder that can be tapped into when we awaken the medicine inside the self.
This medicine is based on free movement and exploration through dance; not working to an audience or a set routine but discovering the dance that is waiting inside of you at that very moment.
Grab a cuppa, we've got some juicy words for you to read!
Our community of dancers have been sharing reflections of their Elements Of Dance experiences, and what the dance means to them.
