Balter Dance Party (for People Who Are Afraid to Dance)

Balter (v.) to dance artlessly, without particular grace or skill but usually with enjoyment. This event is a no judgement zone for people who don’t dance in public because they feel awkward or clumsy. Admission is Admission is Pay What You Can at the Door (free to $10)

This event grew directly out of a breakthrough experienced by trauma survivor and party organizer Michael Broussard. After decades of being too insecure and afraid to dance due to PTSD, he made a breakthrough and reconnected with his 6-year-old self, the kid who felt free to dance and laugh and smile without fear.

The Balter Dance Party is a true come-as-you-are party: T-Shirt and Jeans, Prom Wear, Cosplay, Drag, Steampunk, wear whatever makes you feel comfortable.

Join the amazing DJ DuiJi Mshinda for a night of eclectic music programmed by you! If there is a song you want to hear, just email the file to balterdanceparty@gmail.com. You must include the actual music file (MP3, WMA, etc) as an attachment to your email, no links.

See you there!

Alonely with Jenny Hill

a one won wo(e)man sh(ow) ab(ow)t crying to create (be)auty in a weirld oof distraction.

You have been added to the group Alonely. Strangely enough, or perhaps not, privacy is set to public. Let’s connect through disconnection.

Humor. Coffee. Poetry. Popcorn. Movement. Pathos. Pings. Emails.

Describe something you saw recently that was beautiful. Use your senses. Be ready to create something beautiful.

You have one friend request: Jenny Hill.

Jenny Hill is a multidisciplinary artist, a poet, playwright, arts educator, and performer who loves exploring all the real and imagined connections between writing and movement. For the past 17 years she has worked in the Arts-in-Education program with the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, where she shares creative writing and movement residencies in schools, senior centers, and community organizations. In her free time she stares out the window and twirls her hair. She knows how to be alone without being lonely. Mostly.
