P is for Pilobolus

Happy Thursday!

Today's inspiration comes from Pilobolus, an amazing Connecticut-based dance company. Like all of the people I've featured this month, the members of Pilobolus have a dream and work hard for it. Seeing that kind of dedication to a goal drives me all the more to work toward my own goals. If these talented men and women can reach their goals, so can I. ☺

I'm including two clips here because I just couldn't choose a favorite.  Enjoy!






My daily haiku is now up at the Pulitzer Remix site. You can find it here. Thanks to all of you who read and comment on my poems each day. Your support means so much!


Wishing you all a thrilling Thursday. ☺

  2. I can't choose a Favorite of these two clips, either. Glad you included both. Amazing seems like an over used adjective, but hey, these dancers ARE!!!!

    Amazing Haiku, too!

  5. This group is so phenomenal. I saw them (at least I think it was them) perform in Salt Lake along with the show Radio Lab. It was amazing.

  9. That is way cool!!

    Sadly my dance talents are pretty limited. Hip hop is about the only thing I'm good at. I wish I could do stuff like that though!
