Mary Wohl Haan update: Rain or shine, she's still dancing in the streets

As we reported here last week, Boulder dancer/choreographer Mary Wohl Haan is dancing solo on the Pearl Street Mall for ten minutes at 10 a.m. every single day of this, the tenth month. So far, stage fright hasn't gotten the better of the intrepid performer, who says she's been there and done that so long that self-consciousness isn't a major part of the equation.



And people are apparently enjoying her abbreviated dances, as evidenced by this slide show from last Sunday that was posted to Flickr by Michael O'Neill of Nederland. Haan invites all bystanders to do the same by posting your videos and cell phone snaps at her Haan Dances website.
