Excerpt from the preface

”The ballet clothes that I wore at my last dance class lie crumpled in a plastic bag. They reek of fusty sweat and the confines of a box – and of cellar, after ten years in a plastic bag.
As soon as I close my eyes to feel my way into my dancing body, it feels like yesterday when I last danced. I open my eyes and realise that I must leave the past, let go of my history. The total control over every little muscle in my body is gone. My body is imprisoned. I am imprisoned in my body. I can no longer escape into my body, away with my body. I must decide whether to remain in the past and thus imprison my thoughts … or move on and let my thoughts fly away into forever.”
