Tu (Kap10Kurt Remix) - Yelle
Put on your dancing shoes!
Happy Thanksgiving! Well, sure, it's a day late, but the holiday season is officially underway, and to celebrate, we here at BTR are throwing a dance party! We've got great articles on dance, awesome dance play lists and more this week, including the perfect guest for Sew & Tell. Candice Thompson is an incredibly multi-talented young artist, dancer, and designer, who began dancing at the age of five. She studied ballet at NYU, and was a member of the Milwaukee Ballet company for five years. During her time in Milwaukee, Candice began designing dancewear; when she moved back to New York, she turned her focus to costumes. Now that she's built an impressive resume of costuming experience for a variety of dance, theatre, and live performance events, Candice has focused her stitching talents on visual art as a resident at Brooklyn's Textile Arts Center. On today's show, Candice will talk about how and when she began designing dancewear, her current work as a costumer, dancer, and artist, and a few of her favorite dance tracks! Plus, your very own private dance party play list, with songs from Fitz and the Tantrums, Peter Bjorn & John, Bag Raiders, Yelle and more. Get ready to dance off all remaining evidence of pumpkin pie, right here on Sew & Tell!
BTR is celebrating Summer Week, and what says summer like bikinis and sunglasses? On today's Sew & Tell, I'm speaking with designers behind two different lines of independent, hand-crafted, vintage-inspired, sun-and-sand style. Clara Herrera and Barbara Warren of New York's Lumete Eyewear, and Nadia Dayan of Miami-based CameloPardus bikinis both offer ingenius solutions to your beachwear blahs. On today's show, the ladies will discuss how they launched their lines, their creative and material process, and the aesthetic inspirations behind these fresh summer looks. Plus, music from Bon Iver, Birthmark, Starfucker, Casiokids & more will get you in the mood to lounge on the beach. So grab your towel and start this summer weekend early with BreakThru Radio!
