Thank you to everyone who has participated, watched and commented on Dance-A-Day 2010. I have loved sharing it with you and I hope you continue to watch, get inspired by and make art. Big thanks to Tiffany Thompson for letting me use her music for this final video. Thanks to Todd and Kate for their help with editing.

I say goodbye to my favorite project but I will be working on new ones and while there is much to say I won't try to say it here and now. I do hope you enjoy this dance a day video and I hope you come back and visit from time to time.

What lies next in your path? Only time will tell but you have the power to control your life. Don't allow sadness and anger to dominate, they have their place in a small slightly used corner.

Standing naked before God. No shame. It is how he made me, just as I am. Feeling a bitter, sweet, sad and a glorious meloncholy.

To realize that the past is gone is to come back to yourself. Dancing with yourself. Being alone. That truth of perception when alone is among many people.

What is it that makes us search for eternal love, the kind that resides only in our minds. Projecting ourselves into a future that misses the very moment we are living means we are faced with the inevitable time when the thrill of our ideal life evaporates painfully slow.

The trees at the Botanic Gardens are so lovely it makes me want to dance with them twice. Happy Kwanzaa

Pre-Futurist Dance Manifesto

The world of the past is no more and the world of the future will never arrive. There is only now and how you decide to respond in the now.

Postmodernism has past.

We believe in the intelligence of the body, the intelligence of the mind and that the two are impossible to separate.

Dance is the result of the physicalized mind and the verbose body and we reject putting the cart of scholarship and language before the horse of dance.

Performance happens now, it does not have to secure funding, book a theater or advertise in newspapers. It does not need rehearsal space. It does not need a concept. It does not need to last for more than a second. It does not need to be ephemeral. It does not need flowy pants, tight tops or bare feet. It does not need previews, reviews or even to be seen at all.

We reject the term modern dance, we make art through movement. We dance, we make videos, we make paintings, we make video games, we write, we sculpt, we draw, we act, we sound and we move. We make art. We are artists.

We can change the world.
