ALEXA WEST - DAYTONA FIVE HUNDRED
Daytona Five Hundred is a dance featuring Sofia Dixon, Robert Dietz, two Bruer Cand Chairs and myself.
Through memorized pacing we model a central role of speed and acceleration - social motion.
The race will most likley begin before you arrive but don't let that stop you, there will be concessions" - A. W.
