Facing the crisis

August 22, 2004

I'd like to thank Lewis Segal for his article "Late for the Dance" [Aug. 8]. It served a wonderful purpose in bringing awareness to all of Los Angeles, even to our own dance community, of just how dire the situation is for support and funding.

I am a local choreographer and Dance Resource Center board member. The situations Segal mentioned were well researched (yes, it is difficult to find affordable rehearsal space in safe areas) and accurate. And yes, the DRC is struggling to survive, but we are doing what other larger dance companies are doing, whittling down expenditures, making our mission more succinct, finding ways to maximize our services while minimizing our costs. We are choosing to see this as an opportunity to crystallize what we are about and provide the services that really matter to our community.
