To paraphrase Paul Taylor American Modern Dance Executive Director John Tomlinson paraphrasing Mr. Taylor:
"Dance should be experienced with the eyes in much the same way that music is experienced with the ears. Rather than seeking analysis or meaning, simply see and feel."
One lucky attendee won the raffle for 2 seats at our First Anniversary Dinner.
