I have a secret dream of getting dancers to circle the globe and all move in synchronicity. Dancing with 3000 people on a 1.25 mile bridge that spans the Hudson between Poughkeepsie and Highland, NY was probably my best shot to see that dream fulfilled. (Fun Fact: The Walkway also holds the record for being the longest, elevated pedestrian bridge in the world.)
