Newsletter 6/8: GET INTENSE! How to move when you move…

Dear Friends, Fans, and Associates,

The schedule is out for this weekend’s not-to-be-missed perspective-altering intensive for experienced performers and movers. I’m no longer hedging this statement: it REALLY WILL tie you to an art-powered rocket and shoot you through a mountain into another dimension, JUST LIKE BUCK ROGERS… And it’ll be at least that intensely, extremely, immoderately, and ultimately enlightening, invigorating, inspiring, and intrepid.

And you can already start revving your engines for our Summer Benefit Party Extravaganza. We’ve got ridicularious, ludicrastic stuff lined up, from Fluxus experiments to Burlesque, Comprehensive Life Enjoyment Packages to a beauty bar by The Beauty Bar,… and so much more. So much. And we still have 2 weeks to bring it to boil! Bu-ah-ha-ha-ha…

Aren’t you glad to know you’re on the inside track of Denver’s Best Venue for Dance and Avant Garde?? Yeah, me too.
