I am feeling very liberated! This festival has been a great eye opener for me. Really, I almost feel silly for ever thinking that my ballet background could be a hindrance to my own contemporary work. I am understanding Sue’s comment to me to just let that background have its place in my body as it is there. I do not have to feel the need to bring it forward or highlight it in particular. It just is. Hmm. I really can do what I want to do without worrying whether or not it references well… whatever!  I can just do what I want to do. See what I mean? Liberating. Now lets hope that I can remember this. That may be the real challenge. Remembering this. Not running back to my familiar but allowing myself to sort of ride around in fresh ideas.
