Spring Dance

Joe Simon's avatar Joe Simon

"Spring Dance" is the May Day celebration that is celebrated around the world. It is the oldest celebrated "holiday" around the world. What is represented is a Spring fertility dance to ask for and ensure good crops and abundance for the year. This piece has seven young "dancers" around the pole. Six are holding ribbon wrapped around the Maypole, and one looks on. Why is one dancer outside of the group? You will have to decide for yourself.
