There is a unique dance company which is based in Seattle called Kaleidescope. It is a professional children's modern company.It was started about twenty years ago by creative dance pioneer Anne Green Gilbert, who has has written one of the definitive books on teaching creative dance-"Creative Dance for all Ages". I have been affiliated with the company as a choreographer; in fact, for their anniversary (20) season this spring, I have been invited to re-stage a work of mine-"Yanomami/Brazil" (about the indigenous people who live in the rainforest there.)<BR>ANYWAY, I bring this up because I'm curious. Does anyone know of any other similar groups worldwide---maybe in Australia, Germany (two countries that come to mind because of their strong traditions in modern/contemporary dance), ie, a children's company doing contemporary works?

Trina, you may find the work of Virginia Tanner to be of interest. She worked in Utah from the late 1940s through her death in the mid-80s. The Virginia Tanner Foundation for creative dance (check the University of Utah website and/or Repertory Dance Theatre) was established to perpetuate her work. I believe that Ms. Gilbert knows Ms. Tanner's work....
