(alpharetta) Porter's shining light!
Posted by Ofelia

Dear Dancers, Artistic Athletes and Dreamers!

In my excitement over my clever power point presentation in yesterday's 101 blog, I failed to notice a typo!  Kevin Maddox will be out next Wednesday June 28th (not July)! My bad!

On another note, while I have your attention, last night's master class with Porter Grubbs was truly magical - it was exactly what I expected even though I couldn't "describe" it for you. 12 dancers showed - on a leap of faith (as requested) and the end result was an hour of glorious physical exploration and connection: a breath of fresh air and welcomed departure from the expected. So out of the box - and therefore greatly furthering. 

As dancers, we often get stuck in our heads. Porter understands this and offers us an opportunity to exit the mental chatter and enter into the physical realm within us and collectively with others.  Those of you who attended last night know exactly what I'm talking about.  The rest of you may be like, what is she talking about???? Again, so difficult to describe unless you experience it!

Several asked if he could return. I'll work on this. But in the meantime, Porter will be on the Atlanta schedule on Saturdays and Sundays. We are presently preparing for his debut and I'll keep you posted on this. 

Side note here: "Master Class" does not refer to the level of the class. "Master" refers to the skill set of the teacher - not the level. Porter's class last night had little technical element - it was 100% de-constructed movement that had no level. In fact, it looked like this: view video on our Facebook page. Click HERE

Thank you for coming out. Thank you for being willing to explore.. and play. And thank you for believing in me - that when I bring you a new experience it's because I am convinced it will land on you! 3.5 years under my belt in Alpharetta and I'm pretty sure I've got your number.... TRUST!

Warmly,

Ofelia
