The upcoming issue of the performance journal is themed Survival.
It will feature an essay by NCSA interim dean Brenda Daniels on dancing and motherhood in major American dance companies. Be on the lookout for that, and other articles, in late March.

While on the topic I thought I would share an incredible new offering by BAX.

Purposefully offered to allow working parents to continue choreographing this new space grant meets a lot of longstanding needs. Maybe the Salt Lake Arts Council or Utah Division of Arts and Museums will see that considering artists and their families (which are larger here than most states) will impact the amount of working artists in town (particularly women artists).
