I recently had the honor of being in a re-iteration of Dream Dances with The Ume Group around Halloween time. This got me paying special attention to my dreams, more specifically, what I surround myself with when I dream.

About The Ume Group
The Ume Group is a New York - based dance / physical theatre ensemble dedicated to sharing traditions and developing new work. We believe that a good performance artist is constantly learning, creating, teaching, and performing. We are hailed by critics for our “commanding, physically impressive performances” (The Village Voice) and “risky physical vulnerability” (nytheatre.com) which basically means... we do a lot of handstands and funky butoh stuff.
In this tutorial, Producing Artistic Director, Jordan Rosin demonstrates how to do a basic cartwheel and several lead-up progressions. This is a fun and beginning-level acrobatic/gymnastics trick.
