“An artist is somebody who produces things
that people don’t need to have
(but that he — for some reason)
— thinks it would be a good idea to give them”
With that quote as inspiration..
So…… HELLO WORLD!!!….
It’s time to “Wipe the Daily Miles off your Forehead’
and enjoy a little pinot noir each day with me (6:30 pm shall we say?) … I will I share some spiced up stories and heartfelt adoration about the wonderful world of choreography. A smorgasbord of thoughts WILL POUR OUT on the world of dance, art, dancers, companies, new ballets as well as a eagle eye view of the day to day doldrums (whoops!- I mean magic ) of working alongside the wonderful dancers of the Charleston Ballet Theatre . There will be comments from all the company members as well as outsiders in the field.
On May 1, 2008, we christen our new website graciously donated and designed by Davis Advertising. Alongside this site is the premiere of my blog. I’m dancing as fast as I can. As if my plate is not already filled to the max with choreographing ballets, planning repertory, working with the administration and the wonderful CBT board , this outlandish creation COULD HAVE some moments of verbal abuse… AS WELL rhetorical scolding to all you dancer wanna- bees..
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.”
Twyla Tharp has been quoted to say
“I think that probably the moments of discovery
do come from a place that is not totally organized
Order is something that we already know about
Discoveries are in a place we don’t already know about.”
Ordered Chaos? Perhaps?
CBT begins its 21st year. why not hop on board.? If you are willing to join me on my blog journey and boldly go where no internet blogger has gone before, hold your breath and jump. It will be disorganized.. and Yes we will find the Discovery together .
