Martha Graham Dance Company

Have I told you lately that I love my new lens?  Scott got me the 70-200/2.8 and now I'm addicted to taking pictures of dance performances.  Now to get it down to an art.  For now, I think I'm just being lucky that the pictures are turning out.

Kristal and Emily invited us to a showing of Martha Graham's dance company up at the U of U.  It was a short performance put on for school field trips.  But, it was very cool hearing about her history and seeing the influence she has had on dance.

Since I grew up dancing, I've always been aware and loved Martha Graham for her influence, even if modern was not my cup of tea.  It is still beautiful and very inspiring.

What this performance did to me was make me miss dancing.  Painfully miss dancing.  I also miss surrounding myself with fellow dancers.  Oh, and I miss having a dancers body.  Maybe some day I'll get to do more of it again (beside belly dancing).
