This week I have dedicated myself to stepping back into training. I’m unlearning this narrative that I train in order to be smaller. I am training to feel stronger in my body. I am training so I can breathe through a five minute performance. I train because when I find myself disciplined in dance I am a better person for it. More organzied. More present. More courageous.
This week I also had the opportunity to take my friend Kookie Daniel’s “Fishnet & Floorplay” class here in Chicago. It felt so good just be able to dance and not teach, lose myself in the movement and own IT. I realized that outside of my own class I don’t normally show up without many layers. For this class I pushed myself outside of my own comfort zone.

This song by Lizzo just gives me all the old school vibes and super fun to have your own personal dance party. This week I really want you to focus on letting go of the rules and just giving yourself that minute to slow down and connect with yourself. I hope you all enjoy this week’s practice.
