„If I can‘t dance, it‘s not my revolution.“ (Emma Goldman)

With all the European motion to the political right (not all movement is per se a dance) plus the violence boundaries in deep fall, dear Emma Goldman, British anarchist from the early 1900s sure would not have a lot to dance these days. Rather stomp with anger, I reckon.

But HEY, I am not here to trouble you! Go queue for your share of PRONOIA („the sneaking suspicion that the whole world is conspiring to shower you with blessings.“ © Rob Breszny), indulge in May joys and lush desserts and abundant outpours of sensuality. When feeling thus celestial remember Augustinus who frolicked „(Wo)mankind - learn to dance as otherwise the angels won‘t know what to do with you!“

The Big Melodrama Of The Little Individual. „Mirth“. „Total Masala Slammer - Heartbreak No. 5“. „Wer will kann kommen“. „Judy Was Angry“. „Reality Check“. „Instant Instinct“. All titles of performances and workshops featured at The Big Dance Party for both beginners and pros, which the folks of ImPulsTanz are going to pull off this summer and which is now actually taking shape. All workshop teachers, research project heads and choreographers are now on - online registration as well as ticket sales start at the beginning of June (maybe even May 27), which is also when all detailed texts will be online. ENJOYOYOY!

If then hooked on dance you may want to continue studying or visit your former place of sweat and discipline and massive free social studies - check out the following random selection of European contemporary dance education institutions on the web:

CNDC Centre National de Danse Contemporaine Angers (France):

Anyway it is YOU who defines „useful“ for yourself. Last week a graduate from the Vienna Conservatory projected „All Is Now“ in the end of her piece. A little simply put and yet bold and again and again welcome to me.

Thus currently ardently yours
