Dance for childhood-cancer treatment and research
#Dancergy
 
Happy dance supporting childhood-cancer research!

My co-uncle (6' 3", 290 lbs.) and I made this dance video to raise awareness for child-cancer research, and to invite you to our niece Brooklyn's donation page, which benefits St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Hopefully it makes you laugh, and the laughter puts you in the mood to contribute.

Donate here: http://fundraising.stjude.org/site/TR/Walk/Walk?px=4112111&pg=personal&fr_id=57372

The video's hilarious, but the cause is serious. Team Brooklyn has raised over $10,000 this year so far. Brooklyn is a charismatic 3 year-old who is fighting cancer with her dedicated parents' help. It is the hardest fight imaginable for a family, and almost no family could afford it (a single shot can cost $50k).

ANY donation will make a huge difference to families of kids fighting cancer, because at St. Jude, no child is denied treatment based on a family's ability to pay.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood survival rate from 20% to over 80%. Every year, about 175,000 cases of cancer will be diagnosed in children & the majority of children will not have access to adequate diagnosis & treatment. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.

If you're moved, consider donating: http://fundraising.stjude.org/site/TR/Walk/Walk?px=4112111&pg=personal&fr_id=57372

What if you were named after what you do? This aging dancer's story and outlook are inspiring.

#Dancergy, from +Giselle Minoli​ (read the original post for her thought-provoking introduction to this piece)

All the ingredients of human inspiration. Joy, color, spontaneity, synchronicity (in several respects), diversity in age, race, and gender. The power of modern media makes this so much more than just an outstanding dance performed once at Union Square. Dozens of dancers inspired by two choreographers, recorded by several videographers and others, and planted online to move millions.
 
For +Kena Herod and +Bill Blonigan and everyone else on G+ who loves dance.

I started to dance when I was six...modern dance...but it was performance in front of a seated audience dance. That kind of dance, because that is what children were taught when I was growing up. There was no street dance, not really, or not that was easily visible, or readily available in which to participate.

There were the tribal dances at the Pueblos along the Rio Grande River, but those dances, too, I most remember the ones at Santo Domingo Pueblo, were presentational. And they were, of course, ritualistic for the Pueblo Indians. They had deep historical, religious and spiritual meaning.

But it was years before I would have an opportunity to learn about street dance, flash dance, mob dance...HipHop, voguing, even Milonga and the history of the the Tango - the people's dance of Argentina.

One of the great things about moving to New York City and living here for so many years is watching the movement, the trajectory, the progression of street performance - and not just in the streets, in the subways, in grand central station, in parks, performances spaces - expressed in virtually every culture of people who live here.

I was chatting with (former dancer and dance critic) +Kena Herod and +Bill Blonigan about the lack of complete dance videos available from major performing companies - because of copyright issues, primarily - and it inspired me to post a video of Pantsuit Power, filmed on Union Square just a little South and to the West of me, and wholly of the Street Dance varietal.

But mostly it is of the joy varietal, the diversity varietal, the out for everyone to see and enjoy for free varietal.

And, oh, yeah...everyone is wearing pantsuits...and that is significant and an entirely other meaningful way.

I wouldn't trade my early dance training for anything...but I love that dance since that time has, literally, taken to the streets.

To Justin Timberlakes, Can't Stop the Feeling!

Event Organized and Video Directed by Celia Rowlson-Hall and Mia Lidofsky. Co-choreographed by Celia and Crishon Landers. Produced by Jillian Schlesinger and Liz Sargent. Edited by Jillian Schlesinger and Anais Blondet.


"Can't Stop The Feeling," by Justin Timberlake

[Verse 1:]
I got this feeling inside my bones
It goes electric, wavey when I turn it on
All through my city, all through my home
We're flying up, no ceiling, when we're in our zone

[Pre-chorus 1:]
I got that sunshine in my pocket
Got that good soul in my feet
I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops, ooh
I can't take my eyes up off it, moving so phenomenally
Room on lock the way we rock it, so don't stop

[Chorus:]
And under the lights when everything goes
Nowhere to hide when I'm getting you close
When we move, well, you already know
So just imagine, just imagine, just imagine
Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance
Feeling good, good, creeping up on you
So just dance, dance, dance, come on
All those things I shouldn't do
But you dance, dance, dance
And ain't nobody leaving soon, so keep dancing

[Post-chorus 1:]
I can't stop the feeling
So just dance, dance, dance
I can't stop the feeling
So just dance, dance, dance, come on

[Verse 2:]
Ooh, it's something magical
It's in the air, it's in my blood, it's rushing on
Don't need no reason, don't need control
I fly so high, no ceiling, when I'm in my zone

[Pre-chorus 2:]
'Cause I got that sunshine in my pocket
Got that good soul in my feet
I feel that hot blood in my body when it drops, ooh
I can't take my eyes up off it, moving so phenomenally
Room on lock the way we rock it, so don't stop

[Chorus:]
And under the lights when everything goes
Nowhere to hide when I'm getting you close
When we move, well, you already know
So just imagine, just imagine, just imagine
Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance
Feeling good, good, creeping up on you
So just dance, dance, dance, come on
All those things I shouldn't do
But you dance, dance, dance
And ain't nobody leaving soon, so keep dancing

[Post-chorus 2:]
I can't stop the feeling
So just dance, dance, dance
I can't stop the feeling
So just dance, dance, dance
I can't stop the feeling
So just dance, dance, dance
I can't stop the feeling
So keep dancing, come on

[Bridge:]
I can't stop the, I can't stop the
I can't stop the, I can't stop the
I can't stop the feeling

[Chorus:]
Nothing I can see but you when you dance, dance, dance
(I can't stop the feeling)
Feeling good, good, creeping up on you
So just dance, dance, dance, come on
(I can't stop the feeling)
All those things I shouldn't do
But you dance, dance, dance
(I can't stop the feeling)
And ain't nobody leaving soon, so keep dancing

[Post-chorus 3:]
Everybody sing
(I can't stop the feeling)
Got this feeling in my body
(I can't stop the feeling)
Got this feeling in my body
(I can't stop the feeling)
Wanna see you move your body
(I can't stop the feeling)
Got this feeling in my body
Break it down
Got this feeling in my body
Can't stop the feeling
Got this feeling in my body, come on

Story
Tagline
Dance is free, and it feels good, really good.
Introduction
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
