Austin City Hall was the stage tonight for an outdoor performance of Chaddick Dance Theater. It was interesting to watch the dancers perform while people were out and about in the city, and traffic was flowing behind us on Cesar Chavez Street. The performance is called “Meetings of the Mind” and there will be a few more chances later in March to check out the show if you find yourself in Austin.
The Explore UT event was rain or shine. Today we received a steady dose of rain. I saw soccer playing robots, a projection dance piece, a few other events, and rain. Yes, mostly rain.
Austin Samba flat out rocks! The Brazilian percussion and dance team is so full of energy. If you can find them at an event, then please check them out. You will not be disappointed.
Did you know that you need Classical Indian Dance in your life? It turns out that you do. Anuradha Naimpally is mesmerizing on stage. Thanks to the Our World Family Music Festival for bringing her to the event!
There was a World Music Festival at Zilker Park today, and this was one of my favorite dance teams. Oaxaca, arte en movimiento, was an impressive team. Not to mention the pineapple dance! Yay!
We were treated to a short performance by Round Rock Ballet Folklorico at a work event for lunch today. I took a few photos with my aging iPod Touch. The dances were great, and you should check out their shows sometime if you find yourself in the area.
Today’s fun was found in San Marcos at the Sacred Springs Powwow. There were some inspirational costumes and dancers in the Powwow Arena Tent at the Meadows Center.
Wow, that was a lot of fun! The hillside was probably as packed as I have ever seen it, and everyone was there to see Ballet Folklórico de Texas.
If you are in Austin, you might want to check this out. Metamorphosis Dance Team presents its Ballet Under the Stars show called “… so they dance”. It happens again Saturday night at 8:00 pm at the Zilker Hillside Theater. It is a very pleasant show and it provides you the opportunity to take a picnic and throw out a blanket on the Hill.
This was my favorite part of the day at UT. MOVE! A performance by the Dance Repertory Theatre. The show goes through March 14th according to their website, so get out there and support them. 🙂
