  • The Dancers’ Dialect: Dance terminology as it relates to life and business.  This week’s word is fall and recovery, a technique that was developed by modern dance icon Doris Humphrey.  Fall and recovery is choreographed in dance, however, in life and in business, it’s important that we remember that we can recover.
