Susan’s Playlists Apr 25-29, 2016 – Just say YES + A Spring Thing

yes prince 042616

We took a break from the Sweet 16 tour of the 16 routines I’ve created in 16 years of teaching and did Routines By Other People this week. We also honored Prince with freedances all week. His musical artistry will be missed but also the force for love that he offered the world without recognition.

When asked how he would describe his music, Prince said, “Inspiring.” And YES, he inspired us to see the gift in being different, in being ourselves. A few days before his death, someone sent me this video. When I heard the sad news, I thought of these young musicians on the subway. I thought of how art ripples out from the artist and has a life of its own, fueled by the energy behind it. Prince’s art will continue to touch and inspire us to be who we were born to be.

You can find all playlists below or you can choose to listen to them by going to Spotify! As it happens, the playlists we danced this week had many many songs that are not in the Spotify library (including EVERYthing by Prince), so I put in some replacements for fun. You can listen for free at Spotify! Sign up for free, follow me at “susanmcculley” and you’ll find my public playlists ~ just click and listen!

And first one last reminder:

• dance. sit. write. draw. returns! Saturday, May 7, 830am-5pm – A FEW SPACES STILL AVAILABLE!
It’s not too late, friends. Join us for a day that blends the practices of movement, meditation, writing and drawing to open the channel of your artist self ~ giving it some oxygen and space no matter what your experience is. Join us for a delicious day that includes the splendiferous cooking of the splendiferous Rebecca George.
The four-part mini-video series about the retreat and why you might choose to join us is one mini-series that you can binge-watch in under 10 minutes.
Why dance. sit. write. draw.? 
Wait, why dance. sit. write. draw., again? (Or, Why Pablo Picasso and I Want You To Come To The Retreat)
Dance. sit. write. draw. (It’s a thing!) 
Dance. sit. write. draw. (Your medicine)
Go to susanmcculley.com/workshops for the details and to register. Or email sjmnia@gmail.com with questions.

As always, please let me know if you have questions or how I can help more.
Dance on. Shine on.
Susan sig
