Most of you know that I do hip-hip dance, but most of you never get a chance to see me do it. Well, now's your chance!

On Friday, June 2 at 7:00 pm, I will be performing in a Hip-Hop Open House at the Downtown Berkeley YMCA. There will be several groups performing, and the performances will be followed by a dance party. The event is a fundraiser for the Y's Youth Support Program, so we're charging $10 a head to get in. The Youth Support Program provides not only the familiar summer camp and swimming lessons for kids, but also job training and tutoring for teenagers. It's a great cause and a great event, and it will be a really fun time, definitely worth the price of admission.

This year, in addition to dancing and fundraising as I have in the past, I'm also serving on the committee running the event. So, I'm putting a lot of time and effort into this thing. I would love to see some friendly faces in the audience. Not one but two of my co-workers are planning on coming, so it seems I ought to be able to get a bunch of my friends out, right? If finances are really a hardship for anyone, I have raised enough money to get a few people in free.

If you can't come to the event but would still like to make a contribution, please drop me a line and I'll give you PayPal information. Contributions are tax deductible.

The Y is incredibly conveniently located at 2000 Allston Way, 1 block west of the downtown Berkeley BART station. If you are coming from the city or the peninsula, I highly recommend taking BART, because I believe CalTrans, in its infinite wisdom, is actually closing the Bay Bridge in one direction that weekend.

Thanks for any support!

Should it say "do hip-hip dance", or "do hip-hop dance"?

BTW, it being a car weekend, I can tentatively say I'll be there!

I dunno how I ended up tracking this as being on a different weekend, but my apologies for not being there. I'm sulky that I didn't remember it and attend when I was supposed to.

evidently, bridge closure times are still t.b.d., but here's the official "fact sheet" (in pdf form)
