During the week 48, we experiment with light dances. In the winter in northern parts of the earth, we get less sunlight, which can affect our mood and intake of D-vitamin. When the skin is exposed to sunlight, it produces the D-vitamin the body needs to absorb calcium and phosphorus for optimal bone/teeth development. D-vitamin also strengthens the immune system. Today we will create a dance of the process of photosynthesis. The way plants create food from the sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide.
Photosynthesis is the way plants use the energy of the light to form nutrition from carbon dioxide and water (synthesize).
Imagine your head is the flower head reaching towards the sunlight to receive energy. Your left arm reaches to receive carbon dioxide and your right arm releases oxygen. Your legs are the roots, receiving water. Create these actions in your dance. Feel the energies of receiving and releasing flowing to different directions.
Create a dance of the process of Photosynthesis. Go and dance it outside in the sunlight. Absorb your D-vitamin while dancing your photosynthesis.
Observe: Write down words and ideas that come to mind during your dance.

Body Positive Dance Talk:
When you practice towards a certain goal as a dancer, how do you encourage yourself to reach it?
If you are using comparison based evaluation replace your talk with questions. How is my energy level today? How is it actualizing in my movement? Observe, analyze and let personal epiphanies arise from your dance.
