Send Me Your Moves
* Your Moves Wanted: I ask you for a lot: Come to my show, design me a postcard, teach me computer programs — soon enough I’ll be asking you for money. But this time, I want something really special: your moves. Please come to 15 Nassau (downtown, at Pine street) at the end of next week to dance for my latest dance/video project, 29 Friends. I’m not looking for anything in particular, just how you like to boogie — and you definitely don’t have to be trained or experienced in dance. You can bring friends, come a couple at a time, etc. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know when you can come by for 20 minutes: Thursday November 10 4-6p, 9-10p, Friday November 11, 11a-6p, 9-10p; Saturday November 12 12p-6p; Sunday November 13, 10a-2p.

It is called “a project celebrating the dances of everyday new yorkers” and is co-sponsored by the September 11th Fund and the LMCC.
Over the summer Culturebot participated in Erin McMonagle’s “Beat It” Project which was a lot of fun. So we will try and get downtown to bust some moves in public once again. If you’ve never gotten your high-concept dance on in front of strangers, you should try it.
footnote or sidenote or endnote: I love Nonsensenyc, but I don’t want anyone to feel left out. There are a bunch of good lists of cool mostly-free-or-cheap stuff to do in NYC. I’ve been on Tom Tenney’s Toxic Pop for a long time. Relative newcomers Gemini & Scorpio have been a welcome addition to the information superduperhighway. And for a more comprehensive list of things to do at all price ranges you should definitely be getting Flavorpill.
Also What’s Up NYC is a good one. You can check them out online or have them send you text messages of cool stuff.
