Here we are just before performing at on the Charlotte Dance Festival Stage at Festival in the Park 2013. It was bright and sunny at the time, but the rain quickly moved in and drizzled on an enthusiastic and supportive audience. There was a variety of dance forms represented on the bill, from African to Jewish folk dance to classical ballet. It was a refreshing reminder that dance is not always about technique and perfection, but the passion and devotion of the artist(s). Dance is about expression through movement; some of us just express ourselves in a different way, which is exactly as it should be. On a side note… we all really want to take African dance now.
