This year’s East Coast tour took through Ithaca, NY again. I was there teaching and performing with Taksim Ithaca last year, and was super-excited to be able to return to this wonderfully artsy community of dancers and musicians for more!
While I was there, I got to be a guest on Alicia Free’s fantastic podcast, “A Little Lighter”. If you haven’t listened to this podcast yet, check it out! It is a delightful mix of music, dance, self-care, food and thoughts on how all these things come together in our lives.
In the course of the interview we talked about lots of things, including what I know now that I wish I knew as a beginner dancer, my pre-show ritual, and one of my favorite songs (which is playing in the video below).
Alicia is such a vibrant, fun person with a full-on, adventurous lust for life and that really comes across in all parts of her podcast. Spending time with her has been inspiring for me in so many ways.
One of the feature spots on the “A Little Lighter” podcast is the Damn Sexy Dance Move. Alicia asked me to share one and I chose what I call a “Clock Maya”. I described it on the podcast, and I’m sharing it here as a video too which will be easier to understand.
I hope you’ll try it out – and check out the interview episode to get acquainted with this wonderfully useful and uplifting podcast!
