BW Posted December 21, 2005 Report Share Posted December 21, 2005 (edited) There's a very thought provoking article in today's New York Times. Yes, you have to register to read it and it will not be available forever, but it is well worth reading for anyone who is considering majoring in dance. Granted this article is written, in part about a modern dancer, Mark Morris, but it's also about dance programs and their value- or possible lack thereof. I hope you'll find this worth reading and file it away in the "round file" (AKA the trash can) or in your college files. Read through it, there's more there than you might initially think - for anyone who is weighing their future plans and it speaks about specific college programs in some detail, the differences in liberal arts dance programs vs conservatories, etc., too. Practice, Practice, Practice. Go to College? Maybe. by Erika Kinetz. This is one article in a series called "Making Artists" which examins the professional training of artists across a range of disciplines. More information can be found online. P.S. It really is a good piece - and I know many will enjoy the last line, too. Edited December 21, 2005 by BW Quote Link to comment
