I just thought of another I-guess-you'd-call-it-holistic-approach story that happened with me, thanks to that same wacky dance teacher. When I was in middle school, I fell off something and landed really hard on my ass and totally messed something up in my tailbone. I never went to a doctor about it, but for the next handful of years I couldn't sit too long without it starting to really hurt again. Then, when I started working with that teacher, she taught me a whole new style of dance/warming up that was really focused on alignment and posturing. It was basically being a chiropractor on yourself. A few months later and, voila, no more aching in my bones and I haven't had a problem since. Yes, I healed myself THROUGH THE POWER OF DANCE.
