Invitation: Our Bodies Still Want to Move
When we dance on December 13, Asheville will see 9 hours, 46 minutes, and 33 seconds of daylight. On December 21, the shortest day, we get 9 hours, 44 minutes, and 56 seconds. Then, of course, the days start getting longer again.
In Utqiaġvik, Alaska, the sun set on November 18 after poking above the horizon for 34 minutes, and will not rise again until January 23. That’s a lot of dark! But everything balances out, and they will have continuous daylight from May 11 through Aug. 18.
Dark, light, cold, warm, outside, inside — our bodies still want to move.
You can either download or stream the music. Downloading the file is recommended to prevent poor quality or freezes from limited internet bandwidth.
When the new page opens, instead of clicking the “play” triangle, click on the icon (upper right) to download the file. (If you use the option, you will be streaming from google.)
If you prefer, you can stream the music from Mixcloud by clicking below. Clicking the triangle streams it here; clicking on the file name opens Mixcloud, where you will see track names.
The zoom room will open at 10am.
