I was fortunate enough to snag tickets for the world premiere of Leave It on the Floor last Wednesday at the LA Film Festival at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live 11.
For me, dance is the ultimate form of self-expression and escapism. I think it’s one of the few things in life that can release an individual from his corporal “whatever” and transcend him into something more than. While I was in Boston, I was able to attend a few jams where b-boys from the Greater Boston area, and even Rhode Island and New York, would come together to battle each other. And it was at these sessions where I realized that dance is one place where the color of someone’s skin, his sexual orientation, their religion or creed, her gender, the corporeal characteristics of our identities do not matter.
