This is my first official post on this new blog. Here, as part of my assignment for my Applied Technologies in Dance course I am going to compile a list of other blogs that I like, that relate to my work, or that inspire me. I will tell you why I like them:

http://cocoloupedance.blogspot.com/
This is the blog of CoCo Loupe, a friends and colleague of mine. I sometimes author posts of my own on her blog, but it has been a great inspiration to read her thoughts, and to have a forum to bring ideas related to dance and my own art into an arena for discussion/feedback/opinions/thoughts/etc. from others in the dance community.

http://motionpotion.blogspot.com/
This is a blog that has not been updated in quite some time, but that I am still inspired to explore. The author, Nancy Wozny, writes about art/dance/somatics experiences. I am inspired to read about areas of study that I have not yet explored, but even more so, to hear about a dance artist’s experiences in those fields of inquiry.

http://butohdance.ning.com/
Includes a blog of Butoh based events. A great resource for keeping up with things happening in this specific area of dance in which I am interested.

I just found this blog. It belongs to a woman artist in the San Francisco area, and is simply elegant in its mundane musings. I am interested in reading more deeply and being inspired by this lady’s aesthetic observations.

Not a blog, but enjoy this video of a new collaborative project between Meredith Monk (favorite musician of mine) and Ann Hamilton (favorite artist of mine):

The second song featured in the video, “Core Chant,” is actually a Monk song to which I have choreographed. You can see the video of that dance (part of a larger work) on my youtube channel. The video is at:

Enjoy.
