Last wednesday I did class at the school I used to go to here. Whenever I'm in Berlin I try to go back, they have some really great teachers.
One, a Miss Jessy Tuddeman is very important to me. I learnt so much from her, and it was through her I found out about contact improvisation. There have been times at NSCD when i have heard her voice. Generally its saying 'soft joints!!!!'
When Jessy teaches she has a great energy and shes really clear - its easy to understand what she wants/how shes helping you.
I did her class last week and enjoyed it so much. And, not for the first time, I realised how special good teachers are. Its not an easy task. I have the upmost respect for them.
So I guess I am just taking this opportunity to say thanks to all those good teachers I have experienced.
