Three Glade dancers lunge and search to their right

Three dancers from Glade Dance Collective - Betsy, Alina and Sylvana - perform a portion of Glade's Eureka Dance Festival world premiere, "District. Defined?"

I started this blog because I felt like I didn’t have an outlet for my dance ideas. Now I am blessed to have so many outlets other than this blog and a lot less time just sitting about wondering about dance in my life!

This weekend I am performing with Glade Dance Collective as part of Eureka Dance Festival at Dance Place.

These are all fantastic organizations!

DCist contributor Amanda Abrams has been focusing on dance in the district a lot lately, and I try to comment on it, like it and do whatever else I can to support it! Too often hyper-local blogs miss all the dance performances, workshops and showings happening around town. But when I glance into the flourishing D.C. dance community, I am overwhelmed with too many events to choose from!

Here is DCist’s interview with Dance Place’s Carla Perlo, who actually talks about how the dance scene in D.C. has grown dramatically in the last thirty years:

Here are some ways to explore dance, learn something new or make new connections:


My darling little newborn blog,

You’re my newest wittle baby, and therefore, obviously, my favorite. Your older brothers and sisters will live with you at, but you’re going to get star treatment.

Not only are you about my favorite thing to do – dance – you’re also going to be integrated into a totally kick-booty HTML5 tricked-out dance portfolio page. Your coach, Dave, will help me make sure you are the prettiest and coolest blog around.

Though your pre-teen older sister – Like, Oh My Blog – is about my favorite subject to write about (dating and relating), don’t be jealous. I will spend most of my time with you, darling, and mostly leave LOMB in the hands of her capable aunts.

I’ve named you up&down, honey, because it describes the most basic of the opposites in dance. There’s arch/contract. Jump/land. Ethereal/earthy. Heady music/indie music. Push/pull. Of course, darling, there’s everything in between. And that’s why I love you. Dance expresses everywhere and everything.

Welcome to teh interwebz, up&down. Welcome to this crazy, artistic world, little one.
