dancing on thin ice


Back in February I participated in the Art Shanty Projects helping to build a triangle of love, The Vista Shanty. One of the best days of the project ( whole winter) was the dance throwdown organized by the guys from the OurBurr shanty. Check out this video to see the magic. The fine folks from the Soft Shop really put some work into their amazing prehistoric history show as well as the ice cream and cake give away.
