As city arts supporters are all too aware, King and his company must vacate their fourth-floor headquarters at Oak Street and Van Ness Avenue -- which also house an affiliated clearinghouse of adult drop-in dance classes that serves 2,000 students each month -- by the end of this year. In an ironic twist to the waning "dot-coms displace arts groups" panic, the 50 Oak Street building was purchased last spring by the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><B><A HREF="http://63.78.169.150/style/default.jsp?story=X0222LINES" TARGET=_blank>More</A></B><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited February 24, 2001).]
