Calling Joyful Performers

So long summer. Goodbye State Fair. Now is a great time for outdoor fall frolic with the intrepid DYFIT crew.  Only 6 practice sessions left so join us ASAP

Practice Schedule: Final Two Weeks 

  • Wednesday, Sept. 9 and 16, 5PM to 7:30PM, leader Marcus Young/Aki Shibata, meet at Mears Park music stage, lowertown Saint Paul
  • Saturday, Sept 12 and 19, 1-3:30 PM, leader Kathleen Maloney, Minneapolis Central Library, Room N-202, 300 Nicollet Mall, downtown Minneapolis
  • Monday, Sept 14 and 21, 5:30-8PM (note: new start time), leader Theresa Madaus/Julia Kouneski, meet at Peavey Plaza, downtown Minneapolis

In “Don’t you feel it too?” (DYFIT) participants dance their inner lives in public places, confronting personal awkwardness and practicing physical joy. But the investigation is an outward one too: DYFIT functions as gentle disobedience, as dialogue between strangers, and as ethnographic research. This summer, we build on lessons learned dancing last year at the Republican National Convention and on Nicollet Mall. We invite you to develop this form of play and nurture braver, more open spirits.

Performances will take place 

  • Wednesday and Friday, September 23 and 25, in the late afternoon to early evening. 

You may dance in one or both performances. To participate, try to attend at least 3 practice sessions.  (If you danced with us last year please attend at least one practice.)  Sessions are free, guided, and open to anyone. You need only bring yourself and a set of headphones with music you love.
