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!
