Thoughts on the Once and Future Dance Boom

by ANNA KISSELGOFF
the New York Times

The Intimate, Unified Universe of Dance

by JOHN ROCKWELL

Comments about this issue...about Rockwell as a dance critic.....

Crossover Dance? It's Not a Big Deal

By JOHN ROCKWELL
January 23, 2005

Funny how much fretting an innocent, optimistic essay I wrote two weeks ago, about the unity of dance and the helpful fructification of one dance form by another, has provoked. From letters I've received and chat-room exchanges on the Internet, it seems to me that certain ballet lovers are so profoundly anxious about the future of their art that they resist obvious solutions to the problems they decry.
