I first caught up with Jack Mitchell when he called a Contra Sonic installment in 2011. He mentioned that he had danced with Electric Camel Contra and called to dJ improper's sets before, though not with dJ improper himself there, and that he saw some interesting differences between the experiences--at which point I knew I had to talk to him for Contra Syncretist.
Updates happen on every other Monday & every Wednesday.
So goes the plan, anyway....
Friday Flourishes are on indefinite hiatus as of April 2013, but our previous 100+ videos can still be found on YouTube. Feel free to send more our way, though -- we will still post these sporadically as our schedules permit.
I dance with abandon. I play with glowsticks. I look for music that is conducive to one or both. I play behind cameras. I write about all of the above. I'm based in Glen Echo's contra dance community outside of Washington, D.C., but I'm happy to go dance gypsy when I can. Lather, rinse, repeat. Always repeat.
