Spontaneous backbends..are so not my thing. Years ago, I was hit by a car. My youthful ego pushed me back into dancing after 20 days of rehab. I kind of regretted not taking time out for myself then but shook the feelings off. “My body will just have to deal with it.” Yea right. That kind of shit stays with you. It’s only been in the last 1-2 years that I’ve enjoyed playing with backbends spontaneously. Most days I do a short warmup and then play. On days like these when Copenhagen was just bursting with sunshine…well, pleasure connects to beauty. If I had a morale for this story: Take time out when you need it, not when it’s too late. Also, omit long warmups if possible; life is too short.
