(This image of “Climb” reminds me of the feeling of gripping and tension. It’s from the series of ink drawings I did for Inktober 2017. You can follow my installments this year for Inktober 2018 prompts on my Facebook page or on my Instagram feed !)

This week we explored what’s underneath places of chronic gripping and tension with the side-body-focused Elegant Stumbling routine. You can find all the playlists below.

As often happens when I set a focus for the week, it kept showing up right. in. my. face.
On Tuesday when I was teaching, I started the music and about half-way through the first song, my iPod just randomly stopped. “Oh,” says my brand-spanking-new iPod. “You think you know what’s going to happen?? Think again.”

And then a post by Leo Babauta of Zen Habits popped into my email box. It’s called Give Up Comfort and it speaks directly to our habit, addiction even, to controlling our circumstances. What I love is how he keeps talking about relaxing into whatever happens. Check it out here.

We used the intricate and multi-layered music of 1 Giant Leap to play with getting comfortable with uncertainty. It struck me that this music is like a collage — sometimes the pieces blend together like a painting and sometimes the connections are more distinct. This song is one of my favorites in all categories and is a great example of how a piece of music can take you on an unexpected journey.

Find all the week’s 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 that are coming up in our dancing community:

This week we used the eclectic mix of music and movement of the Sense You All routine to deepen connection to whole-body, holistic movement. 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:

Locker Room Renovation at Albemarle Square starting soon
Renovations on the locker rooms at Albemarle Square will start soon. Here is all the information I have about the project from the Albemarle Square General Manager, Kendall Skeen (kendalls@acac.com):
Q: Why are we renovating the locker rooms?
A: Since opening Albemarle Square in 1998 we have invested over $5 million in facility and equipment upgrades. We continually update our facility and the locker rooms no longer meet our high standards for quality.
Q: Will the renovations cause membership dues to increase?
A: We do not raise membership dues as a result of renovation projects. Membership dues are evaluated each year, but reinvestments that we make to our club do not determine membership dues.
Q: How long is the renovation going to last?
A: The project is schedule to take 14-16 weeks.
Q: Will showers be available during renovations?
A: Our assisted change area will not be renovated at the same time as the main locker rooms. The showers in assisted change will remain open during the renovations. Please remember that we also have three other locations with full locker room facilities: Downtown, Pantops and Crozet. Pantops and Crozet are also locations with 24-hour access.
Q: Will members have access to toilets during the renovations?
A: The toilet areas of the locker rooms will remain open during the renovations with the exception of a couple of weeks towards the end of the project. During the entire project, including those couple of weeks when the toilet areas are being renovated, the assisted change bathrooms near the aquatic center will remain open.
Q: Can members put their membership on hold during the renovations?
A: Yes, members may freeze their membership during the renovations. We want to remind our members that if they freeze their membership they will not have access to any of our facilities during the time their membership is on freeze. Their membership becomes inactive if they freeze it.
Q: How will members be updated on the renovation progress?
A: We will regularly update our members via email, social media and in-club communications. We also have a TV in the lobby that will provide regular updates about the renovations.
Q: How will members change in and out of their swimwear?
A: We are temporarily converting the large storage area in the aquatics center into “His and Hers” dry changing rooms. We will also provide a deck shower so members can rinse off before and after getting in the pool.
Q: Will there be any lockers available other than the small day lockers near the front desk?
A: Yes. We plan to temporarily relocate some of the old lockers from the locker room to the aquatic center. The number of these lockers will be limited, and members may not leave items in these lockers overnight.
Q: When do lockers need to be cleaned out?
A: Men’s lockers must to be emptied out no later than close of business on Saturday, September 22nd.
Women’s lockers must to be emptied out no later than close of business on Saturday, September 29th.
We will remove any items from lockers that are not cleaned out by the above dates.
Q: What do members do with their locks if they are renting a locker from us?
A: Members can turn in their lock and key to the Member Services desk or a Membership team member.
Q: If a member currently rents a locker will they be guaranteed a new locker when the renovations are complete?
A: Yes. These members will automatically be assigned a new locker when the renovations are complete. They will need to contact Membership if they want to cancel their locker rental.
If a you have any other questions please feel free to direct them to Kendall at kendalls@acac.com.
AND To get the latest information on the project, please sign up for the weekly newsletter that goes out every Friday. It is a great source of information on what’s happening in the club. Here’s the link: acac.com/newsletter

Form & Freedom.
Structure & Expression.
Tight & Loose.

Every human endeavor is a balance of these two energies. The invitation of our practice is to embrace each of them whole-heartedly, knowing full-well that we will never “get it right.” How can we dive deep into both form and freedom…and soften into them, too.

You can find all the Form & Freedom 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!

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!
