Paul Taylor at YBCA

Thank you, Paul Taylor Dance Company, for feeding my soul yesterday. What a diverse program, capped by the joyous Esplanade. And I was I was misty-eyed by the end of Eventide, it was so lovely.

Ballet in Cleveland: Guys Dance Too

Great work going on at +BalletInCleveland! One of many lines I appreciate from the video: guys are "our partners." True on so many levels… we all work and dance together!

" #GuysDanceToo  educates, supports, and empowers males in the art of dance. It frees the minds and potential of male dancers and all who aspire to be one. It breaks down gender barriers and stereotypes and creates opportunities for self-expression for all through dance."

Welcome to the Google+ companion to my dance blog, The Dapper Dancer!
