A photo still from a performance by Blue13. It shows two dancers onstage, dressed all in white. One is holding the other off of the ground, and the one being held has their leg extended up in the air.

Daily Helping for April 18th, 2023 – Blue13

Blue13 is a dance company founded by Achinta S. McDaniel whose mission is summed up by the acronym ABIDE. It stands for Access, Belonging, Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity, and I love it. Everyone should have the opportunity to experience dance, whether onstage or in the audience. I also love how Blue13 uses dance to examine cultural stereotypes, and in many cases, turn those stereotypes on their head.

I watched all of the videos available on Blue13’s website and I loved them all, so I’m not choosing a favourite for today’s daily helping. Instead, I’m featuring Blue13 as a whole, and I’m very much looking forward to when I can see them live onstage.

Suggestions for artists I should check out? Please contact me with your ideas. I hope you enjoyed your daily helping of art!
