Had an email exchange recently with another dance organizer, who was one of my buddies
from POTD. We were discussing various aspects of dance series management. He noted that
every dance is different (as in 'all politics are local') which reminded me of
lyrics in a Billy Bragg song, North Sea Bubble:
"I went out drinking with Thomas Paine.
He said that all revolutions are not the same.
They're as different as the cultures that give them birth.
For no one idea can solve every problem on Earth.
So don't expect it all to happen in some prophesied political fashion.
For people are different, and so are nations.
You can borrow ideas but you can't borrow situations."
I refer to this general concept often when thinking about dance organization.
Thought I'd pass it on to the larger group for entertainment and rumination.
You know, since no one idea can solve every dance organization problem on Earth. And
because, uh, you know, a dance is sort of like, uh, a revolution. Right?
