This blog represents a new platform for a passion I’ve had since I helped The Durham Sun Entertainment Editor cover the American Dance Festival in 1979. Ever since, instead of having to go elsewhere to see national and international dance companies, the dance companies come to me via this summer festival that moved from New London, CN. to Durham, NC in 1978.
In more recent years , Carolina Performing Arts (UNC, Chapel Hill) and Durham Independent Dance Artists present dance performances in the fall, winter and spring so there’s plenty to see and write about year-round.
In addition to The Durham Sun and The Herald-Sun, I have also written articles and reviews for Dance Magazine.
And, because my background as a feature writer has also included writing about film, art, theater and books, a commentary on these subjects may pop up here from time-to-time.
In addition to my journalism background, I am also a published poet
(The Caribbean Writer, Earth and Soul (a bilingual anthology published in Kostroma, Russia), etc. )
