There are not only bright days in life..., sadly our Sunrisestudios dance teacher for so many years, Michael Reardon unfortunatly passed away end of October.
He was a very nice person, an experienced artists and passionate teacher. Among others he was a long-term member of the original cast of the musical „Cats“, playing „Quaxo“, the white cat and dancing his famous tap solos about 2000 times. Besides he was also an actor, for instance in films, like in David Garret’s „The Devil’s Violonist“ and was a successful choreographer for big theatres and festivals. We will miss him.
Big shoutout to Coco and everyone who donated and contibuted to organize this funeral.
And big thanks to Sunrisestudios student Sarah Gadinger for singing in Michael‘s honor two of his favorite songs at the memorial tomorrow.
Of course everyone who knew him is welcome to accompany Michael on his last journey tomorrow, December 13th, 3pm, Feuerhalle Simmering. Details see in the foto of the obituary above.

Dance is not only a way to express ourselves, it’s also a way to study our culture. That is the thought behind the donation-based dance classes at the Cumbe: Center for African and Diaspora Dance in Brooklyn. They have launched a series of dance classes where the community can come and learn the dance and spiritual cultures of Haiti, Cuba, and parts of West Africa. Jimena Martinez, the co-founder and executive director of the program, said “At Cumbe, we want the entire community, and especially those of African descent, to reclaim these dance traditions.” By making the dance classes donation-based, more people can come and enjoy the culture of the dance classes without having to worry about money. To make the classes even more exciting, there will be live drumming to “bring out the very heart of the dance culture.” Their use of dance to bridge the gap between the community and their culture is why Cumbe makes the perfect #SQMomentOfTheWeek .
