    Good Morning America made a public comment that not only mocked, but discouraged boys in pursuing the field of dance
.
Listen up, fam - dance is an art form that expresses the human spirit through movement and uses the beautiful human mind and body as instruments. Everyone has a body so guess what, it is made for EVERYONE. With that being said, I have been fortunate enough to have never experience ridicule or bullied for being in dance and have been surrounded by friends and family who not only encouraged me, but unconditionally supported me
.
Do not negotiate your worth as an individual or artist due to gender normative societal standards. Live your damn life, live to create, live to love, and live to be happy

    Ben Timur Acar. İyiyim ya da kötüyüm bilemem. En yakınlarıma sormak lazım. Tek bildiğim dans ederek kendimi ifade ettiğim. Ben sadece dans etmek istiyorum dediğimde belki hayatımdaki herkes engel oldu bana. Engel olan insanlar şimdi ben sahnedeyken alkışlıyorlar. Kalbimin sesini dinledim hep ama dinlerken bile mantığım neye emek verirsen ondan ekmek yersin dedi. Hangi noktaya gelirsem geleyim ben hiç “oldum” demedim. Çünkü oldum demek öldüm demektir sanatın her dalında. 35 yaşında 2 çocuk babası bir adamım ama dansı öğrenmeye ve öğrendiğimi sergilemeye doymadım hiç. Tepeden bakmadım kimseye. En iyi benim diye de bir iddiam olmadı. Güzel şeyleri alkışladım ve destek verdim. Bunlar beni kamçıladı ve daha çok çalıştım. Hiç ama hiç yerimde saymadım. En zor zamanlarımda bile dans ile kalktım ben ayağa. Öğrencilerimin hayatlarına dokunabildiysem ve onları ilerletebildiysem, bir de dansı sevdirebildiysem ne mutlu bana. Bunun dışında kalan düşünce ve yorumlar beni hiç ilgilendirmiyor.  #dance #dancer #dancemale #hiphopdance #jazzdance #dancerlife #dancelife #ballet #contemporarydance #truelove

    Qual mortal nos poderia prender. - ✨A peça passa pelo corpo de três mulheres em suas tentativas cotidianas de caber ou tentar caber nesse mundo abusivo e repleto de exigências inalcançáveis em que vivemos. Como num sonho projetamos ideias, nos conectamos e nos misturamos. Mas é necessário acordar.
Nos percebemos atravessadas pelo excesso de informações. São tantos os estímulos cotidianos que nos moldam como seres (re)ativos sociais, que sobra, e nos afastamos de nós, da nossa história e das nossas potências.
A nossa cultura e os nossos desejos. Comparamos nossa história a um rio: Impermanente e Fluido; Primitivo e permeável ao Novo. Essa eterna busca, chamamos de caminho. E da impermanência somos feitas e nos aceitamos. Aprendemos e evoluímos de acordo com nosso próprio caos, e pela luta, juntas SEGUIMOS 
Quando?? DIA 7 de SETEMBRO 
Horário?? 17H 
Onde?? Centro Cultural Laurinda Santos Lobo 	R. Monte Alegre, 306 - Santa Teresa, Rio de Janeiro - RJ, 20240-193

    Another incredible Fringe performance of Anka’s Story this afternoon.

So many commented on the immense amount of talent on stage.

Our heartfelt thanks to Eva Clarke for, once again, coming to support us. Her narration added an extra level of emotion to the piece; some even coming to embrace Eva as they left, unable to speak for crying. 
There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Only one more chance to catch Anka’s Story at the Fringe this year, on Sunday - and one more for Ctrl Alt Z tomorrow.

    @lara.spencer real men dance. The do it everyday, they’ve been doing it for hundreds of years. Before you walk you dance, what’s so funny about taking it to the next level. You should be ashamed of yourself for utilizing your platform to continue the promotion of the stigma for dance. You should use your position to bring attention to the the hard work and dedication all dancers put into their work yet are still nearly unrecognizable to the average person. Everyone deserve the right to dance and there is nothing funny about loving the art form. Shame on you, I hope you right your wrong. #mendance #maledancers #danceislife #realmendance #dance #danceislife #laraspencer #choreographer #contemporarydance #duet

#YAATRA has travelled far since this time last year and its journey continues. Thank you to Jaivant Patel for inviting me to write the poetry that is a key element of this thought-provoking and important work. Go to experience it if you can...

A captivating evening of solo #Kathak and #Contemporarydance by #BritishIndian #artist #JaivantPatel.

A fresh perspective on #SouthAsian #LGBTQ+ narratives, #faith and #spirituality; YAATRA celebrates two cultures and the intersectionality of living in one, while paying tribute to traditions, heritage and often untold stories of another.

    watching Kaycee in her very own element of story telling and performing this piece is truly something special. you get so mesmerized seeing her turn into this character that belongs to the storyline yet while making the entire piece her very own. i’ve always said and i will continue to says this because it’s just straight facts, no one delivers Sean Lew’s choreography the way Kaycee Rice does, they are both legends out of this world with an insane amount of talent but have an even greater amount of love & passion for dance. seeing them support each other the way they did in Chicago melts my heart so much and i couldn’t be any prouder than i already am of the both of them.
