One of the earliest ideas of dance anywhere® was to change perspectives through a creative moment where none of our differences mattered… imagining that if everyone stopped for a moment in time to dance...maybe we could shift some thinking to be resourceful and open to different ideas.

                                                 letter press invitation to dance anywhere® created by beth fein

There are no prerequisites to participate in this public art performance and it is totally free.

Since 2005, thousands of people on 7 continents, 66 countries and 714 cities from all background and abilities have stopped and danced with the world for dance anywhere®.

Now with the public discourse so charged, discordant, obstructive, frightened and vitriolic…

numbered letter press invitation to dance anywhere® 2016                                                                numbered edition letter press invitation to dance anywhere® 2016

not only am I asking

“what if the world stopped to dance?”

operating instructions for dance anywhere®                                                                             operating instructions for dance anywhere®

 

But also:

“Can we find any common ground?”

I have created a numbered edition letterpress invitation to dance anywhere® that I am sending to what I see as political opposites:

President Obama - Mitch McConnell

invitations to President Obama and Senator McConnell                                                                      invitations to President Obama and Senator McConnell

Pope Francis – Donald Trump

invitations to Pope Francis and Donald Trump                                                                     invitations to Pope Francis and Donald Trump

Michelle Obama – Fox News

invitations to Michelle Obama and Roger Ailes head of Fox News                                                            invitations to Michelle Obama and Roger Ailes head of Fox News

Please send me your suggestions of others to invite.

Can art change the public discourse?

Let’s rock the world on March 18th and find out!

In 2005,  Beth Fein first created dance anywhere® ...what if there was a public celebration of dance anywhere and everywhere simultaneously? Why wait for a performance opportunity to come your way? No audition, application, no references, no formal dance training needed. Everyone is invited no matter age or ability.

 

dance anywhere® mission

Make art accessible to more people
