(How colourful can your dancing be?)
This game of Puzzle Work is a never ending process, a never ending game if we wish or allow it to be. Each body has its balance, logic and its limitations.
“I feel lucky today to be discovering where my balance is and where my limitations are and how I can transform that and integrate that in my dancing.”
