Kairos Performing again with One Voice Mixed Chorus 1/26/13


Our collaboration began in 2005 when Kairos Dance shared stage and energy with One Voice at Hamline University’s sold-out Sundin Hall for the Building Bridges concert. As One Voice Artistic Director Jane Ramseyer Miller said, in 2005 about Kairos and One Voice, "both groups share commitment to diversity and personal expression." Several One Voice singers danced with Kairos for some time after that!

In 2008, we collaborated at St. Paul's History Theater to celebrate One Voice's 20th Anniversary.

Kairos Dance is proud to continue our ongoing collaboration for their “We Are One Voice – 25th Anniversary Concert” on January 26, 2013 at 3 and 7:30 pm at the Cowles Center.

Kairos Alive! is happy to join the entire State of Minnesota in celebrating 25 years of One Voice Mixed Chorus heart, soul, and song.


Love of joy and beauty are part of that mix as well!

Beautiful Evening with Kairos at Loring Park WinterFest


It was a beautiful WinterFest at Loring Park Rec Center Thursday night. KAIROS dance™ led participatory dance with around 45 people, transported by the music of accordionist Mark Stillman. Ages ranged from -1 to 80+.

Folk Dances, Line Dances, Circle Dances, Spiral Dances all did their part in keeping spirits bright in the dark but not-too-chilly night~!
A Russian Troika Dance
Hava Nagila
Serbian Village Dance
improvised long sinuous grapevine line
3 concentric circle
A Capella rendition of “Oh How Lovely Is the Evening”

The planned 45 minute sharing somehow spilled over to almost twice that. Time flies when you’re having fun.

A fire outside and free horse and carriage ride around the lake made the hot cider taste especially good back in the warmth, music and neighborly dancing in the pavilion.

Winter’s not so bad when it gets off to such a high-spirited start!



CONFETTI~A First Person Poem About Alzheimer’s by New Mexican Poet Stuart Hall


My mind’s not at all a blank slate,

Though I can not keep track of the date

Or the day of the week,

And facts play hide-and-seek,

For my mind to be blank would be great.

Instead it is wired like spaghetti;
It conflates the important and the petty;
The connections of things
Are like tangles of strings
Or like celebratory confetti.

Special thanks to Gary Glazner’s Alzheimer’s Poetry Project.
Gary will give a training on the use of poetry for Alzheimer’s patients for Minneapolis Institute of Arts staff, Wilder Assisted Living Staff and KairosAlive! artists on October 4.

No one else can sing your song

Check out this blog from our colleague Barbara McAfee (pictured below with the mic).

Barbara is the nationally active Minneapolis singer/songwriter who wrote the “Great Big Love” song that Kairos uses at the end of all our Dancing Heart sessions.
