I was contacted today by an amazing group: PURE: Public Urban Ritual Experiment.  They have an upcoming show, where the dancers reflect on their body image as it developed over their life spans.  It sounds completely amazing, and if anyone wants to fly me to New York next weekend, I am totally there.  If you happen to live closer, I am sure that this show will be well worth it.

This is the kind of show that will truly reach out and touch a certain kind of teenager.  If your son or daughter is one who loves dance, it is absolutely not to be missed.

Here’s the info:
