Dance table

There was a meeting today for some of the folks interested in the Atlanta Dances concept. We batted around ideas, but the main thing I want to post is that we are going to put together a dance table, with all the info we can collect from dancing folk around town. It's going to be set up (and broken down) at the Alliance Theatre before their Twyla Tharp production "Come Fly with Me." If you'd like to get the word out about your upcoming dance events, we need your help! Leave a comment on the blog here if you will be able to drop off your info, and if you can help with one of the times to set up/break down the table in the lobby at the Alliance Theatre.
The times are 6:30 p.m. till either 8 p.m. when the show starts, or through intermission:
  • September 16
  • September 17
  • September 23
  • September 29
  • September 30
  • October 6
  • October 7
To drop off your materials, the deadline is Friday, September 11. Please put them in an envelope or other nice wrapping with your name on them and drop them off at either the Atlanta Ballet (Midtown), c/o Alyson Brock, or Several Dancers Core (Decatur), c/o Claire Horn. And please, if you're going to take advantage of this opportunity, please sign up for a time to help with set up too!

Other places we had thought of including a Dance Atlanta/Atlanta Dances (yeah, the name of this thing is still vague, you can comment on that too!) table was at the Decatur Book Festival (SDC is hosting the Teen Stage, Sept. 5-6), at the Overture for the Arts at the Cobb Energy Center (Sept. 13), youth summit Sept. 5 (Angela, what was it called again?) and the Dance Truck in Castleberry Hill Oct.2. So let's get the word out there about dance, guys!
