Tag Archives: Bryan Adams


This week we danced mostly to Kelle Rae Oien’s routine, Sacred to explore moving and living from the inside out. While the routine offers sincerely good musical and movement medicine, it’s Bryan Adam’s song, Inside Out that I’ve got in my head. If you haven’t, take a few minutes to listen to it! You can find it here with a somewhat creepy Blade Runner-esque video

The playlists from the week are below. If you’d like to listen to them, you can find almost all the music on Spotify where you can listen for free! Put the music we dance together with other pieces that lift you up, calm you, and challenge you!

But first, here are a couple of things you want to know about:

Inbetween Halloween Jam on Tuesday, October 31 at 840am Downtown AND 535pm Albemarle Square
Celebrate Halloween in a traditional way with Mary Linn, Susan and Rachel. Originally, the day marked both the harvest and the change into the darker half of the year (the shift from orange to black).  It was considered an “in between” time where the boundary between spirits and humans thinned. In that spirit, we’ll use music all from artists who have passed. Put on some orange and black and join us on Tue, Oct 31, 840-940am Downtown, Group Ex Studio and then again at 535-635pm at Albemarle Square, Room B.

Prayer-Flags-of-9-11-315x157“Instructions for living a life.
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.”
― Mary Oliver

If I believed in coincidences, it would be a remarkable one that
– I was thinking of Mary Oliver’s poem, Wild Geese
– when I wrote this week’s post
– and that it just happened to be the week of her 78th birthday
– which also just happens to be the anniversary of September 11 (two powerful ones: Bryan Adams’ video shot in NYC on Sept 7 2001 and 9/11 Prayer Flags
But then, I don’t believe in coincidences.  So I guess it was just a remarkable week.

The opposite of good isn’t bad. The opposite of good is real. Say it over and over. Then, for fun, say it like Samuel L. Jackson.

Have fun. Dance on.
