Join BALORICO this Friday for a playful evening of dance art, ritual, and a purple procession in honor of Peru's purple month tradition. Peruvian contemporary painter, William Hernandez, expands our scope of religious faith to a much broader understanding of what unifies us all through ritual, hopes and dreams. The Milagros, or "miracles" in our lives, keep us going...dancing...growing ...learning...Share your miracle and join the procession,Friday Oct.11, 5pm-8pm at ArtXchange.

It was an eventful Fiestas Patrias at Seattle Center this weekend and happy to have shared some social dance tips with fitness-minded foks.(My favorite was waltzing with my 86 year old partner who stated she dances to stay fit...yeah!) At all stages of life where you have transition in your life-its always movement that keeps you going, keeps you pumped (literally) and allows you to remember there is beauty in our humanity. Give thanks that you can walk, run, leap, jump, turn, spin and dance!
