Octavio Roca summarizes SF's wonderful year in dance. An excerpt:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Debut of the Year: Lorena Feijoo took the lead in Helgi Tomasson's production of "Giselle," partnered with loving bravura by Roman Rykine.

Meanwhile, Allan Ulrich thought the witty "Night" by SFB's Julia Adam the best work in ballet in 1999, among other remembrances from this good dance year in SF:<P><B><A HREF="http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?file=/chronicle/archive/2000/12/24/PK3696.DTL" TARGET=_blank>Allan Ulrich's article in the SF Chronicle</A></B>

And a view from Rita Felciano:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>The year in dance</B><BR>Politics, protest, great myths, green hair: Bay Area dancers give some inspired performances, on and off the stage.<P>By Rita Felciano<P>THE YEAR 2000 has been quite a roller coaster for Bay Area dance. This was the year when dancers moved from the theater into the streets – meaning not just the occasional site-specific performance but actual artists sprinting into the center of the public discourse. Watching dancers empower themselves politically and actually getting results may have been the most encouraging aspect of an otherwise pretty grim year. Yes, Proposition L lost, but the margin was slim, and the fact that the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously approved an emergency rent subsidy program proved that artists finally had gotten everyone's attention – as more than colorful patches in the city's social fabric. As Jo Kreiter bluntly told the board's Finance Committee, "You need us." (Applications and information on the rent subsidy program are available at <A HREF="http://www.arthouseca.org" TARGET=_blank>www.arthouseca.org</A>.)<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><B><A HREF="http://www.sfbg.com/AandE/35/13/year.html" TARGET=_blank>More</A></B><p>[This message has been edited by Azlan (edited December 26, 2000).]
