Sunday Labor Day Weekend

Sunday Labor Day Weekend

On this weekend that serves as a dividing line between summer and fall, there is both sadness and anticipation. Many dancers are going into their fall season, which means learning a new repertoire and preparing for annual Nutcracker performances.

President Grover Cleveland declared Labor Day a national holiday in 1894, and it was established to honor and celebrate the achievements of workers. It is a yearly tribute to the contributions workers have made to the country. For dancers, Labor Day is a good time to think about what we do as artists, why we do it, and how what we do contributes to making the world a better place.

Artists are in the unique position of making other people’s lives better, simply by doing what we do. In any performance or work of art, if we have done our job well, the audience or observer will go back to his or her regular life feeling as though they have had a significant experience of some kind.That’s a pretty awesome way for any worker to contribute to the world.

Enjoy your weekend!
