Basically, it is lyrical and edgy and playful numbers (like the samples attached below) that send me to the moon, and instantly make me feel.
Feel, as in…
moved, lifted, energized, light, transported, rattled, uncomfortable, thoughtful, inspired, full, enriched, happy, giddy, blown away, speechless, goosebumps, wonder, in the flow… spacious!
It is the magic of art at its best.
What does it for you?
p.s. If you watch the videos below, be sure to set them on full screen and crank it up, baby!
p.p.s. My most favorite number of all (and makes me melt with joy every time I watch it) is this one on YouTube (click here). I’m not alone it seems, either. The choreographer, Mia Michaels, has since won an Emmy for the 2010 piece she created to the beautiful song by Sting called “Everything She Does is Magic.”
