Dance of the Day: Fred Astaire with a stomach full of Corn Chips and Valium


If this is what happens when two (extremely talented) people get up in the wee hours of the morning and decide to create something, then everyone needs to be doing this.

No permits. 3 takes. Watch Nathan Mitchell dance it up in Phillip Lopez’s “Fred Astaire with a stomach full of Corn Chips and Valium,” below!

Event: Vancouver-Based Dance Collective OURO

OURO-1Photo by Jourdan Tymkow

Heads up Vancouver, 7pm this Friday and Saturday (May 1st and 2nd) the creative dance collective known as OURO is hosting an evening of contemporary and street dance, and will be premiering a 20-minute piece that they’ve been developing over the last six months. Both nights will feature several performances, visual arts, and yummy drinks courtesy of the folks at The Juice Truck. No tickets to purchase, it’s by donation at the door.

Full disclosure, my girlfriend is one of the dancers in the show. I’ll be there both nights helping setup, so if you come out please say hello! I know nothing about contemporary dance but I’ve seen OURO perform twice and their work is really fun and accessible – you’ll enjoy it.

Video of the Day: Cookies Dance Team Incredible Winning Performance



This performance by San Diego-based dance team, Cookies, is aaaaaamazing. It landed them first place at VIBE XX 2015, and has to be one of the most powerful dances I’ve ever seen. I agree with the Youtube commenter that called these performers ‘visionary artists’; the choreographers really went beyond beyond (that’s not a typo). I think it’s rare to see artists in full command of their craft like this, where every little expression is so perfectly described. I got a little teary by the end of it. This is the best kind of art.

*I just watched it again and I fully cried watching it, it’s so beautiful.

Watch the Cookies first-place performance below.
