TEXT

Start with song the new born day;
Song is light upon your way.
(Repeat from “Start”)
 
Like butterflies we spread our wings,
Raising each hand a new blessing brings.
 
Graceful our bodies thus will grow
Golden seeds of future beauty now we sow.
(Repeat from “Graceful”)
 
Lively as when brooklets flow,
Thus our minds and hearts will grow,
So we dance each day to be graceful, beautiful and free.
(Repeat from “Lively”) 
 
IDEA

 Agility relates to the ability to solve our task as set in exercise 17 “Square” using the “female” approach. We perform softness, tenderness, gentleness, mildness, tact, care, flexibility. We try to be diplomatic, agile, in the language of gesture we look from all perspectives, turn in all directions, arms and hands make undulating movements, fold and touch. Some examples of the soft and flexible approach:

  • water, magnetism  in nature;
  • using mild, kind words;
  • in relationships showing mildness, tactfulness;
  • approaching an issue by getting around before you reach to the point.
Exercises 17-21 are related thematically as a group. In 17.Square we have a problem situation, a task. With 18.Beauty and 19.Agility we work to solve it using the hard and the mild approach. In 20.Conquering we solve and overcome it.  With 21.The Joy of the Earth we perform the joy for the achieved.

“This exercise begins with fluid movements of the arms and legs, first facing the centre of the circle and then turning with your back to the centre. This exercise is a continuation to the previous one – soft, curved lines are at work. The feminine principle that processes the square is at work here. This is magnetism.” [Beinsa Douno, Paneurhythmy, p.80]
