DANCE -- a link -- PLEASE WATCH AND TELL ME


Blog Posted:10/4/2012 8:14:00 PM

I saw this and thought, this is poetry, free from restrictions yet still with retains SOME of its original beautiful form.
 
I see this as creative, individual and moving. Art rising to a challenge.

This, to me, is what I've been trying to say.

This is thinking outside the box, while HONORING the box, PRESERVING the box.

So what did you think?

Is this ballet? Does it matter? Or is it just lovely?

    This was so beautiful Cyndi. It brought tears to my eyes. Craig Cornish read a poem I had written and told me it would go perfectly with your blog, so I thought I would share it with you. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful youtube with us. -Connie Ballet is Poetry Ballet is poetry. . . And both share in The magical movement That is defined as art. As brushstrokes blend Hues onto a white canvas And forms begin to Appear in the glory of a Golden pas de deux dawn, Fingers of light stream Through parting clouds Capturing the divinity Of the death of night Into days beautiful birth. Fluid motion, chassé. . . Balancing earth's elements In an alluring assemblé. © Connie Marcum Wong

    Beautifully done... It shows the human spirit can't be controlled by our physical lives... We can go above and beyond it all if we truly try.

    I have little time here today to watch it, but I will ask YOU, do you ever see the show So You Think You Can Dance? It has every style imaginable, and just looking at these dancers in the picture. I would guess they are one of those innovative styles like I've seen on that show. Contemporary dance I think they call it. I adore dance in all styles!
