<BR>I'll be taking a short vacation to visit my folks around the Detroit & Ann Arbor areas between 5/23 - 6/2... know of any peformances, workshops, clubs, or open studios to check out. I also have many videos of dance from Olympia I'd be willing to share.

Hi --I lived in that area for a couple of years on and off. Check out "Dance Gallery"--a modern repertory dance company, phone number 734-747-8885 -they are based in Ann Arbor. There is also another awesome choreographer in Ann Arbor named Whitley Setrakian. She used to have her own company called "People Dancing". This was at least 10 yrs. ago---check her out. I LOVE her work. I performed a piece of hers called "mary's answer" which was one of my favorite pieces I've ever danced.

I did sound for one of Whitley's performances! And Peter Sparling! at the old Performance Network. Inspired me to go back to school.

Did you get a dance degree-video? Tech? What did you think of Whitley's work? She also did a cool sound/music score for the piece i was in--seems like a multi-talented woman?

I gots an Expressive Arts degree with emphasis on Dance and Video. from the Evergreen State College <A HREF="http://www.tesc.edu">www.tesc.edu</A><BR>What was I thinking?<BR>*It's good to stay hungry and gracefully magnetized*<P>I LOVED Whitley's work... I believe she did "My Blue Heaven", and I cried.<BR>I'm such a baby that way.<BR>Excuse my bluntness. I cry during Friends too. There have been some good dance scenes in that show > Joey and the Super < :P Image

I've never watched Friends--sorry!!<BR> What did you think about Evergreen State College? I had a student (dancer)who was thinking of going there. But she concluded that she personally needed an environment with more "traditional" structure. (Evergreen doesn't give letter grades, i believe). Anyway, she landed up going to western Washington in Bellingham.<BR>By the by, I have a friend in Olympia named Joanna Cashman. She runs a new dance/yoga studio called "Wild Grace Arts". Check it out-she has an awesome background in yoga, dance therpay and dance performance!!

I needed the FREEDOM! I was a non-traditional student... 3rd college, multiple years off between colleges, etc.<BR>I had previously attended a non-graded primary and middle school in Portland, Oregon.<BR>One thing I would've liked is a B.F.A. program. As Joe Walsh said, "I can't complain, but sometimes I still do. Life's been good to me so far."<BR>I spoke with Joanna on the phone once or twice, and I've stopped into Wild Grace Arts. I'll probably spend more time there in the coming months.<BR>Meanwhile, this Michigan trip is imminent, and i should consider washing some laundry first.

as I always say "Good enough to goose, good enough to gander."<BR>I didn't make it up, I swear.<BR>Consider the alternatives: Michiganites, Michiganians, Michiganers...<BR>Now my visit is only a day away...<BR>arriving 10PM as the Michigander flies.

Jb-When I lived in Detroit area, DIA was my salvation!...they had an awesome film series to which I had a subsription. Have you checked out Cranbrook...it's a visual arts school/museum in Birmingham. It's in a beautiful, rural setting...beautiful estate grounds. Check it out!! It's right off of Telegraph Rd., if I remember correctly.

i guess i wasn't planning on cranbrook this time since it's just the static arts. the DIA seems a good idea to my grandmother. she's thinking of who to escort me, etc.<BR>this is a critical time for me and dance. i'm here to "Represent" as it were. dance has not really paid off as a career, but i did not so much decide to be a dancer as discover it and try to honor it as much as i can in my own sweet time.<BR> or maybe i'm all about Now or Never!
