Visiting Sydnie Mosley's Dance in the City

I've just finished up another delightful visit with the talented dancer/dance writer Siobhan Burke, choreographer-educator Sydnie L. Mosley, and Mosley's roomful of bright students from Dance in the City, a pre-college summer program at Barnard College.

L to r: Siobhan Burke, Sydnie L. Mosley and yours truly
We discussed ideas from a Deborah Jowitt essay on descriptive writing in criticism and traded responses to the current Pilobolus run at the Joyce. Answering questions about dance criticism helps me to focus on what I most value as a writer (and a reader) and what strategies work best in the often tricky work of writing about this amazing art form.

Thanks, again, to Sydnie for her always gracious welcome, to Siobhan (my former review editor at Dance Magazine) for being the perfect partner in crime, and to this summer's students for their keen interest and energy. Enjoy the rest of your stay in New York!
