I'm in the goals not resolutions camp, but if I had to claim one New Year's resolution this year, it's to see more dance performances—partly because I feel like I often do a poor job of taking full-advantage of all the city has to offer, and partly because (here it comes) watching a couple of seasons of So You Think You Can Dance has made me a real fan of dance and dancers. Yeah, yeah, yeah. So maybe SYTYCD is not "serious" dance but it's accessible, and fun, and inspiring, and makes me feel good. Seems like a good thing, right?
To get my resolution rollin', earlier this month I went to see On Tap with a friend who thankfully shares (at least temporarily) my enthusiasm for my New Year's resolution. We sat right at the stage's edge, and enjoyed an hour or so of tap dancing up close (VERY up close) and personal. It was fun, and entertaining, and inspiring, just as I had suspected. This is going to be a resolution I can keep.
