Jennifer Dunning writes in the NY Times:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Last week, a promising lobbying effort began when a national dance service organization called Dance USA announced the opening of Dance/NYC in Manhattan. Robert Yesselman, the director of Dance/NYC, maintains that dance, which played important role in the city's culture in the 20th century, must make itself heard more clearly. Some 400 dance companies, of every aesthetic stripe, are at work in the five boroughs. Dance/NYC aims to give them a unified voice. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2002/06/09/arts/dance/09DUNN.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Click for More</B></A>

I don't know the details, but I do know the Look Again: Alaskan Landscapes in Transition project I'm performing with would not have been possible without a grant from Dance/USA. From what I understand, they offered one grant to a university program in each of the 50 states in the U.S. - pretty generous! <P>The organization's website is <A HREF="http://www.danceusa.org/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.danceusa.org/</A> <P>I'm interested in learning more about them since I'd never heard of them before this project came about.
