    On the last night in December, on the last day of the 2011, the Merce Cunningham Dance Company performed for the last time. The avant-garde choreographer passed away in 2009 and the Park Avenue Armory Events, as the piece was called, was an immersive celebration of his legacy, embodying Cunningham's experiments in chance procedures and collaborative work. (He famously partnered with John Cage nearly 50 years, who, according to company lore, was not only the music advisor, but in the early years, the bus driver.)

A person doesn't take dance to just take dance.... No not at all. One takes dance to forget about their troubles for just even those 2 minutes they're on stage... One takes dance to get rid of their sadness and spread love through dance... This is what dance is all about ♥
