Motion365 - Day 069: Maybe Tomorrow
This is a duplicate blog entry from Motion365, my personal dance adventure from 2010-2011. Notable entries have been copied to this blog so students and fellow dancers may enjoy the ponderings and combos created from the experience.

Song: Maybe Tomorrow (4:33) by Stereophonics from You Gotta Go There to Come Back
As I slowly ease back into full body movement, I enjoy a gentle stretch followed by patterned upper body motion including rib circles, shoulders rolls and drops, and the occasional head slide. Fluid arms swim through space at varying degrees of frequency and intensity while floreos and hand undulations add accents to a hopeful tune.
Nearing the end of this small exploration, my body sets into a new rhythm:
-- With body facing the front left diagonal so left hip is fully exposed to the audience
1-4: Lift left hip (with same foot following placement) front-back-front-front (in relation to body)
5-6: Left hip maya walk to the audience
7-8: Left hip maya turn
-- With body facing the front right diagonal so right hip is fully exposed to the audience
1-4: Lift right hip back-front-back-back
5-6: Right hip maya walk to the audience
7-8: Right hip maya turn
