|I'm full of good explanations|
Last night I talked about how sissone is a fireworks step. Fireworks go way up in the air before they explode. "What happens if fireworks explode before they go up?" I asked.
"They blow up people!" was the emphatic, and correct, response.
"Right," I said, "Mass carnage is bad."
And then, in a moment of reserved brilliance, one of my very quietest dancers muttered, "Bless their hearts."
I laughed out loud.
I take my work very seriously, but I also manage to have a really great time.
