Imagine a world where all of Earths major conflicts could be resolved through competitive dance. Wouldnt it be amazing to prevent massive bloodshed and never-ending war by simply forcing the Israelis and the Palestinians, the Bloods and the Crips, or the GOP and the Dems to just boogie till shit got better? Unfortunately, humankind remains so primitive and small-minded that we wont even consider the pop-and-lock solution. Its sad.
Nevertheless, for a preview of a peaceful dance-based democracy, check out Unite and Dance 2 at the Feathers Ballroom Dance Studio this Saturday. DJ Crunchtime will provide the soundtrack, and b-boys and fly girls of every creed, color, and ilk including Jon Boogz, Jiggsaw, Raj, Oreo, Kidd, Karma, and others will battle for a $500 grand prize. But cash wont be their motivation. Theyll bust moves for world peace, prosperity, and the next generation. Or maybe it is the money. Either way, the show begins at 7:30 p.m., and admission is ten dollars at the door.
