I found out a few days ago that Alan Danielson, an amazing teacher I studied with at the Limon Studio in NYC for the past few years passed away. One of my dancers I met in his class told me had had a heart condition. I dropped into his class whenever I was in NYC and he always remembered me and asked what I was working on. He was a very sweet man.
When asked “What would you like to offer young dancers today?” His response was: “I would like to share my love for movement – what it feels like and what it projects to those who are watching. I would like to share my joy in working with music and creating with other dancers. I’d like to show them how dance is life, and how it communicates our existence as human beings.”
I will miss his class and his personality very much!
