On most days, performers are praised for their grace on stage. But I assure you that with a klutz such as myself, that grace can be lost within a blink of an eye. Having just celebrated International dance day, I took a trip down memory lane of my clumsiest theatre moments.
What started out as an exercise to reflect on my blogging and writing skills, led to the idea of creating a series of reflective posts.
