I typically don't find partner dance interesting, but Urban Kiz looks amazing! Another banger, thanks Blake!
"Today, we increasingly understand and accept neurodivergence in children. What about adults? Can some of us live our lives in the seemingly irrational pursuit of excitement and adventure, as long as we’re not hurting anyone along the way? Can we agree that many different personalities and priorities are necessary for a rich, thriving society? Can we support young people in spending time not just with adults who value safety and order, but also those who prize calculated risk-taking, those who talk seriously about ecstasy and transcendance, and those for whom the messy, visceral experience of life—such as learning a new partner dance in a sweaty basement in Berlin—is exactly what makes it worthwhile?"
