I co-teach a dance expression class on Wednesday nights for teens with pervasive developmental disorders. It is always the best part of my week. My second favourite part of the week is making a mix CD for the class. This week I’ve added this song, Chandelier by Sia to the rotation.
This video features 11-year-old Maddie Ziegler of Dance Moms, which I know nothing about but she is pretty spectacular. I can’t wait to see how the kids interpret this song through movement. Sometimes it’s a bit awkward; frenetic; off-colour or intentionally or unintentionally hilarious. But it’s always surprising and heartwarming to watch them come alive to the music.
