I have loved this kind of dance movement from the first time I saw it. Having it set to classical music gives it an interesting seriousness. To see this talented young man smile in response to the audience is so charming. His dancing gives me chills!
This is Charles "Lil Buck" Riley performing the complete Dying Swan on 8.6.11 at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater as part of International Evenings of Dance at the Vail International Dance Festival. Visit vaildance.org for more details. Kudos Lil Buck, and please keep dancing!
Thanks for reading!
