REMINDER: Blind Dance! Sunday, August 19, 10:30am

This is a reminder!

The next blind dance will be Sunday, August 19, 10:30am - 1pm at the Dance Complex in Central Square (536 Mass Ave, Cambridge). We will be in Studio 1.

As always, this is open to friends and friends of friends, so feel free to spread the word. Kids are welcome if they are old/big enough to have their own experience here, or if they are supervised so they don't become hazardous to dancers who can't see them.

I suggest you wear clothing that's comfortable for dancing, which will include any movement you like, up to and including rolling around on the floor. No shoes are allowed in the studio! You might also like to have a snack or water with you. I will have spare blindfolds and handkerchiefs, but if you have one you like, bringing it is a good idea, too.

As ever, I would love to know ahead of time approximately how many people to expect. If you know you'll be there, please let me know!

If you have music that you think would be good for this, I will happily take suggestions or potential contributions to the playlist!

[FAQ: What is this? A blind dance is a dancing event where dancers wear blindfolds as a way to change their experience of dancing. Depending on the level of spotting -- which will vary based on who and how many people are at any given event -- there will be one or more spotters who aren't blindfolded and will keep an eye on things. If you want to attend to dance or spot or both, you're welcome.]

Holy crap, life is so awesome.

Let's review:

I've spent a large portion of the summer traveling to beautiful and/or interesting places, most of that involving incredibly great people who I'm lucky enough to have as friends and family.

In the next couple of weeks, I'm looking forward to going to Burning Man for the first time, and, let's not forget, starting grad school, and I'm completely psyched about it all. All of it!

Ha! Ow.

I'm 80% sure that this video is funny enough to be worth the vicarious embarrassment I feel for these boys. But not 100% sure.

(Video includes music and, uh, suggestive, but still pretty much worksafe, uh, choreography.)

This totally goes to the top of the "Things you'll someday be sorry you posted to the internet" list.
