„In the performance arts, rhythm is the timing of events on a human scale; of musical sounds and silences that occur over time, of the steps of a dance, or the meter of spoken language and poetry. ” – from Wikipedia
Youtube is run by Google. Google knows who is watching my videos. And Google tells me this: 0 % of my viewers are 17 years of age or younger. Google tells me that my viewers are distributed evenly over five age groups: 18-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55-64, 65+, and they are mainly from these countries: US, UK, Germany, Canada, India, Australia, Netherlands.
Some of my viewers work in big companies, some even run big companies. Some of my viewers are senior citizens. Some are dancers and artists. Some are pain-free and into fitness and sports, and some are burdened by chronic pain.
Some have an urge to move, to push things forward. For them a forty minutes long lesson seems too long. Others love to dive deep into long lessons, and wouldn’t mind dedicating even an hour and a half.
Some lie down on the floor and immediately spontaneous, playful patterns and movements start to emerge, from deep within. Others can’t quite get into the art, and fall asleep as soon as they’re down on the ground.
That’s why I serve a buffet, with all dishes and condiments produced to the best of my knowledge. I encourage to remember the movements and play with them ad libitum.
„In music ad libitum means to play the passage in free time rather than in strict or metronomic tempo, to improvise a melodic line fitting the general structure, to omit an instrument part (such as a nonessential accompaniment), to play a passage an arbitrary number of times. In nutritional studies, it denotes providing free access to feed or water, thereby allowing the animal to self-regulate intake according to its biological needs. In drama and performance arts it is used to describe individual moments during live theatre when an actor speaks through their character using words not found in the play’s text. In film, the term usually refers to the interpolation of unscripted material in an otherwise scripted performance.” – from Wikipedia
