Fantasy Dancing

Then there is the kind of dancing that people do who will never actually, physically, dance.

The freedom of movement that is accessible only to the disabled is something that eludes conventional music pedagogy.

I know how it feels to ride a horse, to jump off a high dive, to twirl on a trapeze, to win the marathon, to dance the tango--all things I do only in my heart, most of them entirely appropriate to musical expression.
