Its a world affair when it comes to dance. Across the seas, salsa organizers are gearing up for several dance festivals...and yes they dance on2. For my world travelling students, here is a handy calendar. Yesterday June 4th Peruvians across the globe celebrated AfroPeruvian culture day. Interestingly enough, as I watched FELA at the Paramount, Bill T. Jones' choreography could have been an AfroPeruvian "festejo"if you had earphones on. Loved it! As things heat up, save a little room for dance...in your kitchen, at your friends house, waiting for your coffee-JUST DANCE!! See you Monday nights at the Hall for Ballroom & Latin.

Spring Weddings are in full bloom and I love the variety of traditions each one brings. Maybe eloping is your thing or you defy the "popular age" of the bride, whatever your fancy, the most memorable are the moments your first dance connects with the way you love and are loved. Happy wedding preparations!! Group classes continue Monday nights at Kenyon Hall. Next series begins June 10th. Register at email@example.com. For those who helped Seattle GIVE BIG, Woo Hoo!!! Great numbers were achieved yesterday.

Wow February is zipping by. For those of you who have not registered, be sure to send an email of interest for the April salsa group class. Family dance time is coming up this Monday March 4th, as we dance with handkerchiefs to the sounds of the Peruvian Marinera. In the community: For those of you interested in talking about the, sometimes, difficult subject of race, check out this Seattle screening of Cracking the Codes.( A useful workshop in any aspect of your professional or home life. $5 for students-woohoo!) Lastly, yes, its wedding season-getting married? GET MARRIED. Been married? Unsure about marriage? This is why we dance, its another way to figure it out, grow, learn something new about someone. Big shout out to Roa and Nicky who will dazzle their guests in Maui this weekend. Aloha!

From the heart of American and international creativity, I write this from a familiar place, NY, where the theme that frequently comes up during professional development conferences and artist showcases is about high impact (innovative), influential (socially relevant) & eye candy art (pretty). Whatever the source for creation/exploration/presentation, this thing that brings balance, hope, inspiration, motivation, recreation and at times frustration, Art I thank you for allowing yet another access point for all of us to remember life, living, lives...I choose art. Enjoy (Peruvian) art at Kenyon Hall. Happy Monday! (below,Chicago-based artists: Miguel Cortez, Gisela Insuaste, Paul Sierra, Edra Soto and Gabriel Villa)
