Turf Dancing in the Rain!

by Peter Comrie

Well hello there everyone on this delightful Friday afternoon. It's been busy as heck around here this week and we've been a touch remiss in keeping up with the blog.

That being said, I think today's video offering will make up for it in a huge way. As you are aware, we are forever on the lookout for examples of Full Spectrum Leadership in every expression of life. This weeks video clearly inspired us to create our own little "happy dance" here in this corner of paradise.

The exceptional young folk in the video from Oakland CA have developed an amazing way to settle "turf" disputes. What if we can settle all our disagreements through a form of expression that captivates rather than destroys? This distinctive style of street dancing, known as 'Turf dancing', has been promoted as a means of dispute resolution within the Oakland community. It incorporates and harmonizes all types of styles, from break dancing to popping and ballet...showing us that real respect can be commanded through skill and creativity, rather than fists and guns.

So dear friends, this weekend would be a nice opportunity to have fun creating your own "Turf Dance". Go on, it'll be a hoot.

Have an awesome weekend folks, and get dancing!

See you next week.
