Impetus for studying dance.
16 May 2016
I took my very first modern dance class with Mangrove during their residency in Chicago in late 1979. It had such an impression on me that that a few months later, I moved to the Bay Area so that I could learn more. This led to further dance study at City College of San Francisco and later, work-study jobs in local dance studios, including San Francisco Dance Theatre.
It is hard to believe that, for several years, dance was an important part of my life. And though age is catching up with me, I am looking forward to taking part in a contact jam the next time I’m in the Bay Area.
