"On the edge with a masculine feel"<BR> <A HREF="http://www.vancouversun.com/newsite/entertainment/4398767.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.vancouversun.com/newsite/entertainment/4398767.html</A> <P>Michael Scott states in this preview that dance is "an art form that is dominated by female choreographers and performers." I don't think female choreographers are dominating this field by any means. Also, I think dividing a dance festival up on the basis of gender is silly (and an easy way out for writing a preview). Can anyone tell by watching a dance performance whether the choreographer is male or female? Does anyone care? <P>

Whoa, interesting question, Marie. *Can* anyone tell if a work is choreographed by a male or a female? I think choreographers have distinct styles, influenced by many factors, including personal experiences; so, perhaps gender is a factor but only a minor one.<P>Hmm, shall we start a new topic on this?
