My fellow earthlings, here we go. Tighten up your seatbelts for this fast and furious discussion about jazz dance. Finally some real talk about jazz dance because many of you have some serious gaps and holes in your education. My article is straight no chaser. Congratulations to our editors @lkguarino Carlos Jones and Wendy Oliver and to all authors @jazzydramaturg @tasha_b_va etc. thank you for including me again on this second book. I’m full of gratitude. From discussions at NDEO conference to words on the page. #rootedjazzdance #therealthing #jazzdanceclass #jazzdancebrasil #jazzdance #jazzdancer #jazzdanceclass

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

That time in Korea with my locking partner @buddhastretch. I didn’t win the locking battle but didn’t care the experience was more rewarding for me than fleeting bragging rights. I need to find the footage of me stretch and Jimmy Soul getting down together.

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

See Friday for the third class as we focus on Move-meant Knowledge and examine the repurposing of space with the creators of the Nae Nae, and find out what Beyoncé was telling and showing us in Formations, and how political was Michael Jackson? You will never watch another video or movie the same way.
