Music & Other Gems Sep 3-6, 2018 – Proprioception & Interoception



Returning to the Miracle & Wonder routine (created 7 years ago in honor of the 25th anniversary of Paul Simon’s Graceland album) was rich and varied and…fun (how could “a rolly polly little bat faced girl” not be?)! Thanks to all who came out to be amazed not just by our miraculous bodies, but the wonder of Paul Simon’s music.

I love the interweavings and collaborations in the Graceland album. You can find the scoop on the original focus of the routine here. And there is a great interview with Simon about the making of the Graceland song here. And The Google reveals lots of great videos and interviews to check out about his fascinating creative process. And finally, one of the things I admire so much about Paul Simon’s work is his poetry. You can find all the lyrics of the routine here.

Miracle & Wonder was a great routine to explore this week’s focus of Proprioception & Interoception. You can find all the playlists below. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! Please let me know if you have any questions about any of the music we dance to!

But first, here are some things I know you want to know about:
