My favorite thing about ATS(r) is the ability it gives us to connect with each other – to really feel the pulse of the music inside another person’s head, to share a brain and artistic vision.
I’ve been watching the reboot of Cosmos, with Neil deGrasse Tyson, and he gives us his version of this profound piece of astronomical wisdom:
(He means the stars in the sky, of course. it’s a shame when this quote is misinterpreted, as it so often is.)
ATS(r) is more than a dance form for me; it’s a philosophy, a way of interacting with the world and with other people. And what a gift it is to get back to that real, honest connection: we all come from the same source, we are made of star-stuff.
What’s your favorite part of connecting with your fellow dancers in the moment?
