Built on Love

I can never really find the words to describe my love for Built on Stilts. It is by far my favorite event of the season on MV (maybe because I am merely a spectator?) and we look forward to it every year. Dancers of all shapes and sizes and ages and abilities dance. They bring hip hop and ballroom and jazz and ballet and contemporary styles alive. They are creative and loving and are very much loved by the audience. Nothing pretentious, just dance and the passions that come with it.

Over the years it has fostered a love of dance in our little family. We find ourselves talking about performances we have seen well after the summer has ended and even years later. The dances are beautiful and provocative and sometimes really weird, but they all have value and meaning and they have added so much depth to our enjoyment and understanding of dance.
