MamaDances Newsletter November 2013

Message from the Artistic Director

Welcome to MamaDances!

A rapturous fall:  benevolent temperatures, frenzied nature dances of transformation, of the shifting of colours, of the play of shadows and shafts of light, of leaves tumbling and trees waltzing. What fervour! What an orchestra of changes! Chelsea has discovered her hands and her mouth and the satisfying relation between them. Yoko has lost her two front teeth and becomes more “fashionista” with each day.  MamaDances classes are on a roll. Teachers are sinking into the material and I am finally get it all down on paper. I am back in the studio! Life. Preparation. Transformation.

Thank you for your curiosity.

I won’t keep you too long.
