Description

Celebrating 10 years of dance anywhere®!

March 28, 2014

What if there was a public celebration of dance everywhere, around the world, simultaneously? What if, in one moment, the whole world started dancing? Why wait for a performance opportunity to come your way? No audition, no application, no references, no formal dance training needed. Everyone is invited!

dance anywhere® is a simultaneous worldwide public art performance. For the past 9 years, people of all ages and artistic capacities have made dances in parks, museums, street corners, schools, work places, community centers, bathrooms, and just about anywhere you can imagine. Participants have been professional dancers and artists, plumbers, doctors, soccer players, teachers and politicians. Some dances are choreographed, some are improvised, and some stretch the definition of what dance is. We hope you will participate on Friday, March 28, 2014 at noon CA, 3pm NY: (click here for your time).

The mission of dance anywhere®

-Build community by engaging people worldwide in a simultaneous, public art, performance

-Reconsider the definition of art, public space, and community

-Make dance accessible to more people

-Inspire creativity

-Change perspectives through community art experiences

Artist Beth Fein first created dance anywhere® in 2005 ...what if there was a public celebration of dance anywhere and everywhere simultaneously? Why wait for a performance opportunity to come your way? No audition, application, no references, no formal dance training needed. Everyone is invited no matter age or ability.

Beth Fein originally conceived the idea in an effort to acknowledge dance practice (rehearsal, class, etc) as an art form, that formal performances are only a part of dance, that the less observed dance practice is also an art form. As a dancer and visual artist, Fein has continued to develop this original concept to not only blur the line between art practice and art, but to dissolve the line that often separates art and dance from our daily lives. This is dance that transforms our familiar and ordinary locations.
