HAPPY 4th BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!!!! ❤💙💚💛💜 On this very day, 4 years ago, we had our very first rehearsal. I called it, "Project: Choreography", until we finally chose a name about 4 months later. This is part of the poster I used for the Facebook event to announce the project. I included a pencil scrible in the right-hand corner because I knew it was all just a sketch for what was to come... (sorry it's not visible because of Instagram crops!). Looking back, I have been testing waters to discover what avenue to take with this project that had been created on a whim of enthusiasm. I had a desire to go deeper into my dance amongst a supportive community and I surrendered to what could unfold. I was fortunate to discover so many who shared the same dream. As the director of the collective I had some growing to do, a particular voice to develop, and some incredible women to meet!
Today I realize that despite the sketch, specific underlying values, messages, aesthetics, and principles have been there since day one! On the celebration of this fourth year, we will be continuing on the path of truthful, meaningful, educational, and inclusive dancing in a new focused way. The sketching phase has passed and the lines will begin to be drawn in with a thick 4B pencil. I believe this new phase is entitled #saysomething! And the eraser is in proximity just in case... because that's the artist's way.
Some stylistic changes are coming up and we hope you continue to enjoy the journey with us! It's gonna be a wild ride!!! 🚂👭💖✌💃😍 To all who are in or have been part of Ya Eshta, Merci 💞
