With love and disregard

Today was our first big day in the studio working on our Museum of Fine Arts, Houston material for "With Love and Disregard"

Lots of sharing of ideas and lots of sweat!

If you happened to be on Decatur Square this afternoon at 3:00, you might have caught a glimpse of us working through a structured improvisation in honor of Dance Anywhere day!

Keep checkin' in, we've always got new tricks up our sleeve.

Return to OZ

Phew! We had a whirlwind weekend at the Bayou City Arts Festival in Houston, TX

We danced, we sang, we laughed, we cried, we trekked through swamps, battled mosquitos, braved a water war, attended a fashion show and became one with the bear. (see photo)

As always, keep an eye out for CORE and upcoming events. Next up is the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. We will create a piece based on the work of abstract painter, Jules Olitski.

Walk it out

If any of you Core blog devotees were out and about in Decatur this morning then you might have seen some interesting goings on. Be it a tightrope walk on the square, a Gene Kelly inspired swing around a lamp post, or a waltz on Ponce, these Core dancers aren't afraid to dance anywhere.

What we are doing is getting ready for our Dance Walk "Square Dance" that will occur at the Decatur Arts Festival on Memorial Day weekend.

Look to the Core website for more information on how to get involved.

And if you're feeling up for it, come Waltz with us on Ponce next week. Have a great weekend ya'll!

Exploring the intricacies of Downtown Decatur

We braved the blustery day, and investigated the Downtown Decatur Square. We took notes historical and architectural examined different perspectives for an almost secret project that we will launch soon! No visual documentation yet.. we don't want to give it away too soon...

In the meantime another photo of our demi fictional new band 'Sopapilla'!
