Dance Classes For Cancer Recovery

Moving For Life is a program designed by Martha Eddy, Ed. E., and is dance exercise for cancer recovery.

There are other programs as well. I read about it today in a post by Ronald Levine, D.C.

Movement For Life offers free dance classes for people recovering from cancer. How wonderful is that.

Sometimes disease alienates us from our bodies. Or a section of our body. Cancer induces such fear, and I believe if we withdraw our energy or attention from a body part, we deny it the energy that is going to make it heal.

I can't think of anything better than dance to connect and communicate creative energy and spiritual energy to our physical form.

Thanks to Dr. Lavine for writing about this!

Class locations are NYC boroughs, Long Island, New Jersey and California in the LA area. Moving For Life .

(I first found Dr. Ronald Lavine at The Body Series, Deborah Vogel's site).

Dear Readers - Apologies To My Commenters!

I have just had the occasion - if not torture - ha ha, of having to revisit my 271 posts on this blog to update many links.

What stood out to me hugely was - I am really bad at getting back to commenters! I'm just horrible. I'm so grateful to see a steadily increasing readership, and to see that readers still leave comments.

I promise to reform!

The world of dance and ballet continues to grow and change. Reality television covers professional dance in "Breaking Pointe" and YA television presents "Bunheads". Although that is more about a dancer's relationship with her mother-in-law of a dead husband, than it is about the ballet studio she inherits...well, we'll see where that goes.

Live ballet is still my favorite theater. And blogging about ballet, and encouraging dance students in any way I can.

So "dear readers", please keep up the comments and I'll reply!!

I have been busy lately getting some small works published and writing a novel with Vone Deporter (with a ballet dancer heroine). Vone painted the beautiful ballerina oil painting at this dance blog.

Rudi Van Dantzig

Linda Maybarduk Alguire has posted..."For those of you who have not heard yet, the ballet world has lost Rudi van Dantzig. Quite simply, I loved and admired him so much that my husband and I asked him to be the godfather for our boys, Michael and Cameron..."

Such a big loss to the world of dance. Lives on in spirit with us...
