to dance // creative

Always trying new things, I am. It keeps me happy.

I asked my cousin Maggie to do some dancing for me in back alleys as we walked around Saskatoon. She was game. My other cousin, and hMaggie’s bff, Michaela, did the makeup. Amidst the stretching and not-so-helpful encouragement – “just jump… and bend your legs like how they do… just dance….” – Maggie was ready to work. Over the course of an hour, we moved around and I watched her pose, jump, stretch, reach, hold, “square her hips,” and many other things that I have no idea about. As I have never taken dance classes, I had no idea how much physical work and preparation it is even just to chill in back alleys like this.

I couldn’t imagine the work that goes into performances.

Grace. Beauty. Strength.
