I just learned about his amazing yearly event, and so I will have to wait until next year to plan anything that resembles grand. But for now, it's enough to spread the word.
This Friday, March 26th, is Dance Anywhere Day. At 3 PM New York time or 8 PM Paris time, you and some friends or coworkers are asked to stop what you're doing and just dance.
Here's a video from a hair salon in San Francisco. There's no sound, but it's not needed. You can see the giggling. How amazing would our days be if we all stopped and did this for five minutes?
And because they say it so well on their site, here's what it's all about:
dance anywhere® brings everyone's attention to their immediate environment and brings awareness to the change that dance and art brings as it converges with their day.
dance anywhere® is about shifting assumptions and heightened awareness, and generating dance anywhere and everywhere simultaneously.
The concept for dance anywhere® blurs the line that separates art and dance from our daily lives. This is art that does not need to be on a stage.
dance anywhere® is about the transformation of familiar and ordinary locations.This is a conceptual dance created by Beth Fein.
And if you're really daring, make a movie or take a picture and post it on your blog. Make sure to come back here and let us all know you've taken the leap!
