Complex



I went to a performing arts high school and all of my friends were/are dancers. Because of my small frame people automatically assumed I was a dancer as well. I always took it as a complement. This past weekend I realized how I miss dance and even though I wasn't a dancer it was a part of life. I probably went to every show and dress rehearsal my friends were in. I can't count the number of times I saw the Nutcracker during the holiday season. This past weekend I got to reminisce a little bit. I went to see Complexions, a dance company founded by previous Alvin Ailey dancers Desmond Richardson and Dwight Rhoden. It was amazing! I appreciated the more classical ballet to Ave Maria as well as the contemporary performance called Rise, which occupied the entire third act. It was an electrifying work to the soulful rock of U2. Afterward, I felt revived and inspired. Maybe I will sign up for those tango classes.
