I just spent the better part of an hour watching the CBC documentary on the development of the Alberta Ballet's "Balletlujah". The music is KD Lang's.
I have always been bouleversée by KD Lang---there isn't a stronger, truer voice, and she has always seemed to me to be so in touch with herself, and so comfortable, without being very "Look at me".
The documentary, which I highly recommend, was beautiful, moving and wholly compelling. It brought together for me things I'd been or am passionate about and reminded me how much joy dance has brought me over the years. My own, my daughter's, my grandchildren's, my grandparents's, complete stranger's dance has always delighted me and I must do something to cater more to watching performances.
I'm just going to rise gracefully now and point my toes as I go out to pick up my book---one of the many other passions that keeps me from experiencing dance.
