Flying Low. Put on some swishy pants.
--- passing through the body from standing upright --;
-- spreading fingers, toes, limbs, ribs, pelvis the floor!
-- as small as possible fetal position on my side, head to knees, elbows in--;
-- roll under the body, tuck the skeleton past itself, ten fingers and ten toes.
Cristiana shows us the next one. She gathers, She sends.
She says, “I gather, passing through by body, I touch my feet”
She says. “ I’m sending, I see, chin off the floor, my legs are relaxed, I am puuuuuushing into the floor!”
She says, “Check it with your partner.” I check it with my partner. Right side starts curled to the left this time? Partner is in Group 2. I am in Group 1. I will replace my partner in space. RUN.

Let’s go faster now. Group 1, GO:
***Baby can’t you see? I’m caaaaalllin. A guy like you, should wear a waaaaaaaaarning. It’s dangerous. I’m falling. Doo doodadoo doot dootadoot EEEEEEooooEEEEEooooo***
Group 2, GO!
She shows us the next one. I spiral. I fold. I gather. I send. I run. I pass through my body. I slide. I spiral, I send. I bring my whole pelvis at once. Or I try to.
I feel like a dolphin.
Check it with your partner. Press through your partner. Build their structure.
Do this one slowly first.
“Neeeeeeaaaaar. Faaaaaar. WhereEEEEEEEver You Are.”
It’s a sport. (But it’s not.) It’s soccer on a the vertical plane. It’s mountain climbing on the horizontal plane. It’s at the water park. It’s a mud slide. It’s martial arts for lizards. It’s Ido Portal and Breakdancing and Aikido and also it’s not. It’s a way of training. It’s a way of performing. It’s inviting. It’s for everyone. It’s for dancers. It’s a precursor, a preparation, for something else entirely. It’s creator, David Zambrano, says it’s only a chapter, not the whole book. It’s self reliant and it spits out copyright. It doesn’t need to be the author. It doesn’t hold on. How will it age? It’s sweaty and and detailed. It’s really fucking fun.
