i'm here in Mexico City with my best friend from high school, ellen. She's lived here for 5 years and I've finally made the trek to see her & joyfully romp around the city.
so far I've met a literal basketful of kittens in the park, watched a man play with a wooden puppet, prayed at an ancient cathedral, gotten a full set of acrylic nails, witnessed energy cleansings in the Zócalo, and eaten a lot of chilaquiles.
last night during a rainstorm as Ellen and I drove home from a delicous Oaxacan style meal, we heard "SUCH GREAT HEIGHTS" by the Postal Service on a Mexican radio station. Ben Gibbard was basically the ven diagram of our musical interests in high school, so this sparked a very raucous sing-along, and an immediate dance party upon our return.
this leads me to my entire point of this email: one of ellen and I's favorite things to do is to march around and play "follow the leader" dance aerobics where one person leads, and the other follows, in a sort of unspoken, hilarious, and suprisingly exhaustive dance routine.
come laugh! come listen to 2000's hits! come shimmy! come shake! come march! come make a mockery of yourself!
we can't wait to lead you through this joyful hour long class on Sunday June 19 from 5:00-6:00 PM PST//7:00-8:00 CST!
there are lots of ways to attend this class:
If you are a Black dancer/mover/shaker you are invited to join for free in honor of Juneteenth.
excited to see you tomorrow! email me if you have any trouble signing up, and I'll send ya the link.
Julia & Ellen
