ABSTRACT
The article discusses the author's experience in dancing to her friend's funeral. She claims that Susie, the mother of her friend Ariel, had asked her to dance with her in the funeral. The rehearsal process was simple. They just sat on the floor and listened to a compact disc that comforted Susie with its layers of singing, shouts and prayers. She adds that she cherished the rare opportunity to offer her post modern dance skills as a useful service to the people she loved.
