  • Dance in Lucia Neare's "Recipe for Love"!

    Hello, Dance Lovers —

    Here’s your once-in-a-lifetime chance to swing dance through the streets before an audience of thousands.

    Guy Caridi, Jodi Fleischman, Winfield Hobbs, and Dean Paton are inviting everyone in our dance community be a part of Lucia Neare’s next theatrical Wonder, Recipe for Love, a gigantic, free, outdoor, performance celebrating springtime on Saturday, May 3.

    Back in 2008, about 90 dancers from our community danced in Lucia’s Ooo La La — a May Day Spectacular! Everyone who participated had a blast. People still talk about how much fun they had. This time, Lucia would like 200 of us — costumed as Bakers — in the show.

    As Dancing Bakers, we’ll not only swing dance our way through the performance, and the streets, for an audience of thousands, but we’ll also serve as whimsical honor guards for the five gigantic golden eggs on their promenade through nearby streets.

    Lucia, Guy, Jodi, Win, and Dean truly hope you’ll join us for this unabashedly celebratory afternoon of music and dance. You can find out more about Lucia’s work by going online and searching “Lucia Neare Vimeo.”

    Or by going to LuciaNeare.org, clicking on the Wonders tab, and checking out Ooo La La and the other “wonders” Lucia has created.

    For more information, to sign up, and to receive the rehearsal schedule, email: casting.lucia.neare@gmail.com.

    It’s going to be a grand time!
