I had a chance to work with the phenomenally talented dancers of Airdance. In the usual course of their dancing, they push themselves incredibly hard, for opportunities that rarely offer good financial returns. I could see the toll that this had taken on their bodies. What I wanted to offer them was a chance to dance with as much lightness and ease as possible, and I led them through a structured improvisation workshop that eventually resulted in the final choreography, which was shown in July, 2009, at the fourth WiFi Body International Contemporary Dance Festival in Manila.
