dance calendar (finally)

Ok,'s only half the calendar.
But still, it's better than nothing.
The rain has stopped for a bit, and I see sunlight outside, so I'm out of here.

This is Dance Calendar-Part One, which contains dates of specific events and showings that I am involved with.
Part Two will have detailed listings of events for Dandelion Dancetheater and Axis Dance Company, as they both have a whooooole lotta stuff going on.

Firday, April 21st at 12-noon (pdt)
A Kick-Off Event for National Dance Week

A calling for dancers to break out into movement, all at the same time, everywhere.

"Want to dance? You are invited to dance anywhere you choose...a simple phrase / an improvisation / a choreographed dance...anywhere: a street corner / a park / an office / a school"

If you like to dance, please get out there and do yer thang. If you know other people that like to dance, please link them to this invitation. If you aren't into dancing yourself but like to watch dance performances, see who has rsvp'd and go check them out.

note: As it turns out, I have dance rehearsal with Dandelion Dancetheater that day starting at 12-noon. I've asked the director if our "warm-up" can be a structured improv outside. I also asked him to understand that if a group dance isnt going to pan out, that I'll be doing a solo and coming to rehearsal 15 minutes late. From the rsvp list, it looks like we're dancing! Yay! We will be up in the College/Claremont area near Shawl-Anderson Dance Center in Berkeley, and it looks like we will be in the in the company of many. Can't wait!

April 21 - April 30

You are awesome! What a lot of good stuff you are doing! Phrases like "No Limits" come to mind.
It sounds like the next few weeks will be a lit of fun.
