Some of my favorite memories from this trip are when we got to work with the students. In one of my workshops we practiced witnessing each other. It seems simple, stand in a circle and clap or stomp a beat while one person improvises a solo.
Eventhough it's simple, it's powerful and deep. No matter how young and inexperienced someone may be... they still have a story and have something to say so when you take the time to witness (without critique, without comment, without judgement) something beautiful unfolds. The work is being done.
Many deep thanks to Clare Croft, Jennifer Harge, and all the faculty and staff in the Theater and Dance Departments!
