My fellow Earthlings, Spread the word. Intangible Roots: building upon movement philosophy, deep dives into history and heritage, helping to find and redefine cultural and personal identity, and awareness through exploration of the human condition. Unlock the doors to the hip hop concept “can you rock” understand how your own social cultural expression has a roll to play in your appreciation for hip hop and a reimagining in your own cultural knowing.

2003 Philly, dancing with Clyde Evans Chosen Dance Company. 2nd and Market. My best dancing was never captured on video. I like this song more than how I’m dancing to it. Just basic groove in the 4/4 for me, sometimes that’s good enough. I never really dance to perform or entertain I dance simply because I enjoy the music even when I’m supposed to be “performing.” I stole that first step from Link

Today I begin my journey into my Power-5/Knowledge-1, trip around the Sun. I was planning to go live to celebrate with you all but after a 90min talk Friday for Intangible Roots and a 5hr talk yesterday with @passionfruitdamceco for the dance community in Switzerland my voice needs rest. So throughout the day I will make a few posts this being the first. As is my custom i wish my mother a happy anniversary. Something I believe we all should do instead of making it about you when it’s the anniversary of our birth and the day we got to see the woman that was carrying and feeding and nurturing us. Also I acknowledge my ancestors who endured so that I might be here. I am grateful and blessed. The only thing I would add is that special woman to share, experience, witness, and design the rest of our journeys with. I love you all be safe, take care of yourselves and each other. @ Downtown Los Angeles
