Please Note: Read the directions carefully below BEFORE you RSVP 'Yes' for this event.

1) I am hosting this event for both Gay Foodies and Pleasure Palate.

2) You MUST call[masked]. You will get a vice mail message and tell them your name, number, how many people you are reserving tickets for and that you want to attend the September 8th, 7 PM show. They will call you back only if they can't accommodate you.

The tickets cost $15 each person.

3) The show starts at 7 PM, but arrive at 6:30 PM because I suspect its open seating, so if you want to seat together as a group, arrive early.

4) When you arrive the night of the show, call me at:[masked]. Do not text me.

I love going to dance shows and I heard there's a really good one going on in an underground theatre in NoHo called Zombie Joe's. Each dance is supposed to be intense in choreography and some even gravity defying, so come join me in NoHo to experience Dancing on the Edge!

From BWW Dance World's website:

"No matter what kind of a production ZJU Theatre Group is working on you can bet they'll throw themselves into it with everything they've got. Their latest, a dance performance piece called DANCING ON THE EDGE, is no exception. Staying true to their overall aesthetic of raw, creative, smartly crafted original works, it blends multiple styles of movement and dance to create an emotionally rich experience completely free of words.

Denise Devin (http://www.broadwayworld.com/people/Denise-Devin/) directs the seven dancers (JJ Dubon, Donna Noelle Ibale, Randall Morris, Zee Smith, Jade Waters (http://www.broadwayworld.com/people/Jade-Waters/)-Burch, Cody Whitley, and Nicole Wormley) in solo works and ensemble pieces that have been choreographed by Carrie Nedrow and cast members Ibale, Waters-Burch, Whitley and Morris.

The result is a dynamic range of emotions that finds its characters teetering on the edge - of joy, of despair, of beauty and even pain. Dubon begins the show with "Hurt," a throbbing, broken-hearted solo that immediately grabs the audience with its dark intensity. In "Ma Coeur Mort," featuring Smith, Morris and Ibale, the counterpoint of two dancers vs. one reveals the precarious balance of a relationship through movement.

Ibale and Morris are later featured in a strip tease called "Home Safe" with floating hands extending from the curtain in a playful expression of freedom. Morris then crashes Nicole Wormley's beautiful classical ballet (http://dance.broadwayworld.com/topic/Ballet) number (nice fouettés) with a burst of unexpected comedy. By the time the show reaches "M," featuring the same three dancers in a piece that illustrates how difficult it is to disentangle oneself from the baggage of past love, it is ready to explode.

Whitley's self-choreographed "Animal" is a jaw-dropping, gravity-defying piece of unforgettable athleticism, and Smith kills with her hip hop moves and fast footwork in more than one number. Waters-Burch is all cute and flirty personality in "Vaudeville Circus: Fantasia" and "Clown Frolic." She joins Wormley and Ibale in a comedy-turned-Pussycat Doll fantasy entitled "Redemption" late in the show that re-invents the threesome as their sexy alter-egos."
