Dancing in the park

" width=

PROJECT DANCE “I’m down with G-O-D, yeah u know me.”

Project Dance is a traveling um, dance project, whose founders want to “positively impact culture” and help dancers fulfill their “fullest human potential for their own wellbeing and their contribution to the world.”

Honestly, we have no idea what that means, but the dancing was really good. A three-day festival of traveling and local dancers in Centennial Olympic Park last weekend, the show mixed hip-hop, lyrical, ballet, and modern dance. Sadly, there was no mime, but there was a dancer who approached the lip of the stage to yell about the end-times.

Speaking of end-times, the only real bummer about the show was the overbearing religiosity of the music. Instead of fun religious music (gospel, Handel, Jesus Christ Superstar), too much of it was of the tedious, earnest, contemporary Christian variety. We don’t want to risk a smiting, but yuck.
