One thing in life is certain. And that is life is unpredictable. You don’t always know what will happen next. Does that trigger fear? And what is fear to you? Anxiety? The unknown? Or, can you approach fear in a different way, as an acronym that stands for feeling excited and ready? I thought about this after my conversation with the insightful Louise Reichlin of Louise Reichlin & Dancers, also known as Los Angeles Choreographers and Dancers on the topic of the unknown and not being afraid of failure. We had a wonderful conversation about her longevity with her dance company celebrating 40 years this year, with performances on October 19th and 20th at The Barnsdall Gallery Theater. We also discussed her paths to purpose, different learning styles, the importance of being present and more. I was so excited to interview her in person, in her home, in a room that was full of fascinating dance history and making art.
