Days Gone By... Dancing through life
Former students to hold reception for beloved dance instructor
by JOHN FOOKS for the Texarkana Gazette

"After a while I began to realize that not only could I dance, I enjoyed it completely," Dixie recalls of the days before she realized her lifelong career calling of dance instructor. "For as far back as I can remember I was always moved by the beautiful movement of the body and the physical expression of dance as interpreted through music."

Turn Day Dreams to Reality
Are you dance-possessed and career-bored? Do you dream of giving up the day- job to become a dance teacher, but fear you’ve left it too late? Former court reporter Suzanne White may make you think again. A 44 year-old qualified Ballroom and Latin teacher, she didn’t start learning to dance until she was 34. For Dance Today, Miranda Piercy met her to get the low down on dance as a new career.

“I’d spent so long as a housewife bringing up the kids, I felt I’d lost me. To people I was Mrs White, Paul’s wife or the mother of the children. But when I started dancing I was called Suzanne — it gave me back my personality,” says Suzanne.

Steps in the right direction
by JANE BOND for the Daily Telegraph

There are all sorts here: teenage boys with spiky hair and ripped jeans, tiny girls in pink T-shirts and leggings, lads in football shirts, skinny adolescent girls with groomed hair, public schoolboys with side partings and tank tops. Anybody dances with anybody - girl with boy, boy with boy, 10-year-old with 16-year-old.

Kicking Up Hope
by JUAN FORERO for the New York Times

But Brian, now a 12-year-old with a wide smile and a dancer's build, was determined to join the Colegio del Cuerpo, or the College of the Body, a contemporary-dance academy whose cutting-edge choreography and eclectic performances have shaken this tradition-bound city.

The Canterville Ghost
By David Dougill for The Sunday Times


The London Children’s Ballet, directed by Lucille Briance, is recreated each year for a new production at the Peacock Theatre, with a cast of more than 50 dancers aged (mostly) 9 to 14. These performances are always handsomely staged, and last weekend’s, The Canterville Ghost (from Oscar Wilde’s story), had a versatile score by Artem Vassiliev and excellent designs and stage effects.

Passion in imaginative 'Firebird' restaging
by WILMA SALISBURY for the Cleveland Plain Dealer

The production, presented last weekend at Ashland University's Hugo Young Theatre, skillfully fuses Russian story ballet with elements of traditional Asian theater. The sheets are smoothly woven into the choreography to define space and help the title character perform magic.

Ohio training gave her wings, choreographer says
by WILMA SALISBURY for the Cleveland Plain Dealer

Ohio has never been the dance capital of America. But it has long been a leader in dance education.

...

While the majority of Ohio-trained dancers pursue careers elsewhere, some choose to return to their roots. Renowned choreographer-director Dianne McIntyre came home to Cleveland two years ago after a brilliant career spanning more than three decades in New York City.

Ballet Chicago keeping Balanchine's spirit alive
by LUCIA MAURO, special to the Chicago Tribune

It's rare for young dancers to perform these challenging ballets. But Duell believes it's important for them to be immersed in the Balanchine repertoire the same way aspiring musicians study the great composers. For its upcoming concert, the Studio Company will tackle "Allegro Brillante," "Concerto Barocco," "Tarantella" and "Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux." Also on the program are the "Angel Scene" from Duell's "Hansel and Gretel" and a new contemporary ballet, "Shaker Loops," by Ted Seymour.
