New dance crush

I've developed a new dance crush. No, I'm not going to give up on my old crushes, I have space for many of them. My new one is on n.o.madic tribal. I've been aware of them for awhile, and I love Ali's intelligent and thoughtful posts on various groups, but I'd never sat down and watched a bunch of their videos. I love what they are doing both with their ATS-derived improv (and how they've made it their own) and the choreographies they create (which keep the feeling of the improv while allowing for more ambitious staging). Here's a clip:

I also love how they bow to each other at the end, we should honor our dance partners!

Ali -

It's my pleasure, to both watch n.o.madic and to gush about you all!

I'll keep an eye out for the workshop details.

I hope you had a wonderful birthday!
