In the dance blog world, Boris Willis is a bit of a rock star. He’s been posting a dance video every day on his blog, danceaday.com since May 11, 2007 and now this Sunday he will make his final post. If you take a quick perusal of Boris’ blog, you will see that he has gone on an amazing and profound journey full of experimentation, discovery and varied terrains. From his first video shot in a parking lot demonstrating effeminate gestures, to an entire month of posts about important sites of Black history in Washington DC, as well as 43 collaborations with the fabulous composer, David Morneau (who has also been posting a composition a day on his blog 60×365.com), Willis covers the entire range of styles, experiments, and types of improvisation one can do with dance and a camera.
This is a lasting and valuable collection of videodance for the web 2.0 era. Thank you Boris for your tireless commitment to this adventure and sharing it with us everyday.
Check out his blog at danceaday.com, and be sure to send him off with style!
