A Very Dangerous Pastime

This is too funny!! A Very Dangerous Pastime is a 14-minute award-winning video that aims to reveal the “secret” of looking at contemporary dance. Directed by filmmaker Laura Taler of Grimm Pictures Inc., A Very Dangerous Pastime is a humorous and textured collage of dance film, vintage footage, and interviews with well-known Canadian actors, athletes and musicians. It is designed to awaken our interest in contemporary dance and provide tools to help audiences enjoy dance in its many forms. Ultimately, this video shows that we all have an innate ability to relate to and appreciate dance.

A Very Dangerous Pastime premiered at the 2000 edition of the Canada Dance Festival and has been broadcast on Bravo!

Prepping for Vacation

Just finished one of the two major grant reports I needed to get off before leaving for Santa Fe on Wednesday.  One down, one more to go!

Thank you to our newest students… I’m so grateful that you stopped by.  Explore, entice, and enumerate your needs –  get what you want out of the art is the most important thing!
