Dance to the Music

When we were rehearsing for our show “Take Me Back to Hip Harlem” (this Saturday, 12/4 at 7 PM and Sunday, 12/5 at Intermedia Arts in Minneapolis) this morning I had several moments of ecstasy that many performers hope for while dancing. As we began “Wade in the Water” with vocalist Fred Steele, Peter Schimke on keyboards, Kevin Washington on drums and Douglas White on bass, giving us this amazing music, I felt a joy that sometimes shows up when it all comes together.
We had a group of excellent dancers, with honed choreography, added lots of rehearsals and hard work and we were fortunate to bring in this group of outstanding musicians AND YOU’VE GOT THE MAGIC OF ARTISTRY all woven into one moment.
It’s all about “kairos” once again.
