A very nicely written article:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Embracing It All: Four Decades of Dance</B><P>By Lisa Jo Sagolla,<P>When Back Stage debuted, on December 2, 1960, artfully conceived dances by Jerome Robbins, Gower Champion, and Peter Gennaro were enriching the Broadway musicals "Gypsy," "Bye Bye Birdie," and "Fiorello!" The ballet world had begun to swoon over the virile athleticism of its new all-American star, Edward Villella, while modern dance fans remained ecstatic over the premiere, earlier in the year, of Alvin Ailey's masterpiece, "Revelations." Today, Broadway dance includes everything from male strippers to puppets to disco. Ballet companies are absorbing and benefiting from the choreographic imaginations of modern dance artists, while the post-modern and serious contemporary dance scene is withering under severe financial distress. Our terpsichorean climate has altered dramatically since Back Stage first hit the newsstands in 1960. What were the catalysts of change and how can we characterize each of the past four decades of dance?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><B><A HREF="" TARGET=_blank>More</A></B>
