Lioness is a body of work that was initiated and choreographed by my dear friend Janice Steinberg of Nia San Diego. She and I both fell in love with the music of Wiyaala awhile back. When Janice said she was creating a routine to Wiyaala's music, I asked her if I could learn it. With her blessing I have embodied and reinterpreted Lioness for Somos Luceros.
The lioness is primarily the hunter and leader of their pride (family/community of lions, lioness’ and cubs). They are keenly aware that the survival of their pride is dependent on their skill, strength, speed, agility, courage, and grace. Unlike lions, they retain a sense of playfulness into their adulthood which makes them quite fun and creative. Their roar, used to proclaim their territory and defend their loved ones, can be heard up to two miles away. The lioness teaches us to be self-assured, caring, protective and purposeful.
Lioness is an invitation to explore and embody pride, power, protection, play and proclamation (the lioness’ roar) along with their gifts of grace, agility, strength, courage, and beauty. This body of work has brought me so much joy. I look forward to dancing it with you. And yay - it's Leo season!
The dance moves are simple and guided by the language of storytelling. You are invited to receive the choreography, bring it into your body and make it your own.
