"Effervescent bridges the city’s burgeoning DIY performance and music scenes with collaborations as inclusive as they are kinetic." Full Story. Baltimore Magazine, Best of Baltimore 2012
Effervescent is an award winning Baltimore based dance organization that explores and promotes the power of movement, creating dance based wonders in collaboration with the many beautiful artists of Baltimore.
For Effervescent, dance is a physical practice in connection to a groove.
Founded in 2008 by Lily Kind, Effervescent performances work outside of conventional performer-audience divide and playing with the relationship between music and movement. Presenting dance is our main means towards encouraging others’ desire to dance.
Effervescent has collaborated with many Baltimore based musicians: Andrew Bernstein, Dan Deacon, Mickey Free, Chase O'Hara, Hume, Rod Hamilton, Leprechaun Catering, Louis Weeks, Dustin Wong, and Zomes, visual and performing artists: Jake Dibeler, Lexie Mountain, Kathleen Pumphrey, and Joshua Wade Smith.
Many Effervescent members are deep in the Return of Saturn, and Effervescent has retired. Production assistance for Baltimore dance wonders is ongoing. Check out BIDA.org for other directions.
