“Dancers learn to fall correctly. The act of “falling without hurting yourself” is about developing a skill. It is about letting go of rigidity and inhibitions, making a statement, a leap, yet landing unscathed. For an artist, this translates as learning to be confident in one’s ability to express one’s self, remaining strong despite the vulnerability of continually revealing inner thoughts, desires, feelings or motivations. From then on, it’s about making a habit of creating, continuing to develop, and to ‘hang in there’ day by day.”
