Powerful screening of "Tanaquil Le Clerq: Afternoon of a Faun" a documentary film by Nancy Buirski. Deeply moved by this film about the exquisite Balanchine Ballerina Tanaquil Le Clerq who was a star of the New York City Ballet until age 27 when she was struck down by polio and paralyzed... she was in a wheel chair the rest of her life and never danced again... Resonated much with her story having experienced paralysis myself. Seeing her muscleless legs reminded me of my own alien like legs and arms after weeks of immobility. Her identity crisis: Who am I if I am not a dancer? is the one question I repeatedly asked myself during the long months of recovery. But above all, her strength of heart and positive outlook in life is what stabbed me the most, and something we can all admire. I am blessed to be dancing today.
