There are advantages to persevering with a question or thought which rises up during the early teens and then appears and reappears throughout one’s life. For me this question was a philosophical one. I felt a need to understand the very nature of dance.
When you hear the word “dancer,” what is the first image that comes to mind? Is it a woman in the peak of her beauty dancing in nature? Now take that same image and see the woman in her sixties. Can you?
