the problem with modern dance in d.c. (read: everywhere)

Visit this link for a take on the dance scene in D.C. and it’s various issues.

I was reading and mostly following along until the writer starting talking about how Philly is so awesome and/or L.A. is much better at addressing those issues. Mostly because I know a lot of the “140” dance companies in Philly would fall privy to the same criticism presented earlier of D.C. choreographers, or people in most cities can identify similar issues within their own field/scene.

I think it’s great to take a critical look at what in each city isn’t working (why loveDANCEmore started Mudson or a journal for example) and even great to put that in context of other cities. But is the grass ALWAYS greener?
