Limitation Etudes 7-10
"Historically, dance education praises women, who take direction unquestionably," says Bouldin. "So I want to facilitate an environment where young girls are in dialogue, choreographing and practicing. It is essential to the future of the art form. "
"What happens when you wake up after living a life that revolves around movement...and you can barely move?
This is where Banning Bouldin found herself one morning, and it sent her on a powerful, personal health journey. Banning is the founder of New Dialect, a contemporary dance company in Nashville. She was recently diagnosed with an early stage of multiple sclerosis and has been working her way back from the consequences of the disease on her body.
She uses her story to show how important it is to be your own patient advocate, to search and research treatment options, and to build a network of health professionals that will help pull you through. Her story is a reminder that even in the midst of all our 21st-Century technology, a personal approach to medicine and healthcare is still the most important thing."
