I am leaving on a choreography trip soon and have been trying to get all my prep and choreography done. Yesterday, I set out to complete a contemporary solo. Honestly I haven't done contemporay in a while. Contempoary and lyrical use to be my bread and butter, but I moved away from it creatively as it became more popular and I didn't feel I had anything new or unique to add or say in that space. For the past few years I have been focusing on jazz and experimenting with different styles and movement within that genre. Apparently, I have created "Kali Jazz". I didn't know that as a thing until I had a group of dancers request a "Kali Jazz". Well, yesterday I played in the contempoary space again and, wow, I did not expect the cathartic experience that overwhelmed me. I cried the entire time I created. As I moved I let whatever emotions came up, move through me and into the movement. My emotions washed over me and I allowed myself to feel and process as I danced. It felt so good. I was reminded why dance is so important and why I need it in for my soul. This is why I dance. This is why the world needs dance. This is why we created Prosody.
