Movement Inspiration

Inspiration comes in many forms and from many sources.  Today, I was especially inspired by this article about a dancer who lost her foot in the bombings at the marathon last week.  I can’t begin to fathom what she is going through right now, but I will tell you that losing the use of my legs and feet is one of my biggest fears.  She has a pretty impressive outlook and according to this other article is moving forward quickly, including a guest appearance on Dancing with the Stars.  I just might tune in for that episode…

But today’s first inspiration came from Finis Jhung’s blog.  He posted another Artistry In Motion video featuring a hip hop dancer, whose movement is memorizing.  Not only that, I love that the music is not what you would normally expect for a hip hop dancer.  I am working on a piece that does something similar, so I was excited to see how well it worked in this instance.  Do yourself a favor and watch this video:

Thanks for the inspiration, Mr. Jhung!
