“The desperate state of dance in America.”

Reading Terry this morning:

Ballet? Never Heard of It.
The decline and near-disappearance of dance in America.

… “Just a quarter-century ago, ballet and modern dance were vital, exciting, and (above all) popular. Now they’re at a frighteningly low ebb. What happened—and what can be done to pump up the volume?” …

I leapt to my feet (that’s not me above) and thought, “not in Chicago!”
Dance here is more glorious than I can ever remember.

Yesterday’s Trib agrees.
