-Our first house dance party last Saturday was a blast. Thanks to everyone that came out. You all made it an unforgettable experience. When I first started working on Movemakers/UMA, I didn't have in mind a venue for parties. But that door is open now! I was totally surprised by the feel of the party. It felt like my first encounters with loft parties in the mid 2000s (Sadly I am too young to have recollection of the OG loft happenings of NY.) UMA was full of good vibes last Saturday, inviting and uplifting. And all of you that were there were so free! It was a privilege to share with you. You all inspired me to practice and party more, hence my impromptu trip to NYC last night, a juicy all nighter that reminded me of my days first starting in the club scene. Many thanks to the Hood Lockers, Lauriane and Mai Le!
The exchange in the video below between Tyger and me is just a small representation of what went down. The overall party was so much more rich! But this moment is important to me, because Tyger was one of my top dance partners way back. i owe so much of my development to exchanging with him. He's the man (if you are curious about him, go see him at Koresh. He holds it down).
On another note, this event will be called IN DA UMA going forward. Our next event is April 27th. Mark your calendars! - Vince
