Island Dance
by ELIZABETH ZIMMER for the Village Voice
published: August 28, 2007

Founded in 1973 by Patricia N. Nanon, the Yard occupies 2.3 verdant acres in the hamlet of Chilmark on Martha's Vineyard, a 100-square-mile island off Massachusetts's south coast that attracts affluent urbanites every summer. With a 100-seat theater, an adjacent studio, and housing for 18, it has served for 35 years as an incubator for dances by choreographers like Doug Varone, Susan Marshall, and David Dorfman, as well as providing Nanon with a place to develop and show her own work.

Now in her eighties and increasingly frail, Nanon retired as artistic director in 2004; she and her family recently concluded the legal arrangements to transfer ownership of the facility to the nonprofit organization that supports and manages the Yard.
