With 19 days left to go, we’ve reached the half-way mark in achieving our goal. We’re so grateful for your generosity and interest in our passion for sharing Zipper Dance with others.
This morning I saw a photograph that reminded me of Zipper Dance: the classic image of a swarming, shape-shifting flock containing thousands of small birds. Each feathered creature is balanced in its flight surroundings so that it can help the whole group body have balanced movement and direction. Not a single bird is defined as the leader as all the participants play off each other to form the entire flock’s expression. Each bird has a genuine trust for one another that exists through multiple levels of communication.
So true is this in Zipper Dance. As my teacher Mykl Werth once put it: “Your ability to learn how to trust as you dance is something you carry with you; you can’t help it. It’s all about growth and the potential for transforming your life. Fear turns to love, and joy into creative dance. It is the essence of partner dance; the balance of giving and receiving right now in this present moment. Exploring that essence will lead us to connect and create a more balanced existence in our daily lives.”
Zipper Dance gives us the tools to play and dance like these birds. We discover our freedom and ability to be individually creative, feed other’s creativity, and feast upon theirs.
