Describe Yourself As A Work of Art


Jalene is a dancer, and Pilates and yoga instructor in Three Rivers and one of the key people who brought me there for the workshop this year.  Incredibly playful and positive and just a treat to be around, she was totally open to doing a few dances for my blog.  This is a video from the first day – an exercise we worked on together.  It felt right to divide the dance into two parts. Enjoy!
