Do you want to enjoy dancing with your partner? How about having some fun dancing at a downtown pub? Maybe you want to learn a dance for your wedding, or dance at someone else’s wedding? What about dancing the night away on your next Cruise? How about a dance event for your organization or a group class for your employees to enhance Teamwork and Morale?

Playing music and singing with other people is a powerful way of creating community. Harmonizing with voices and instruments is a beautiful expression of synergy. Synergy is “the interaction of two or more ingredients to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.” When we make music as a group, we have the potential to tap into an archetypal power of music. I am not talking about engaging in the profession of music, I am referring to making music with others for the love of music and community.
THIS MONTH’S #1 INDIE NEXT LIST PICK…
By Carmen Maria Machado
(Graywolf Press 9781555977887, $16, trade paper)
“Reading the stories in Her Body and Other Parties has been among the greatest literary pleasures of 2017 for me. Carmen Maria Machado writes with fearless exploration, precision, and tenderness, which would prompt envy if gratitude and admiration weren’t first to arrive on scene. From the lovely apocalyptic love story ‘Inventory’ to the dizzying and original ‘Especially Heinous,’ Machado’s work is curious, inventive, and thrilling. It’s feminist and pop culture, classic and weird; the stories are complex and the characters are haunting. What a debut!”
