Linda Gold doesn't like playing what she calls "the career label game," the process of defining herself as either an academic or a choreographer. "The days are over when I placed myself in distinct boxes," she declares, "before I found--I hate this word--a more holistic outlook. I know a lot of young dancers outside of school who end up resenting the artistic life because it can prove fatal when you're also trying to put food on the table."

Linda Gold has reached a plateau in her career where she not only makes dancing look easy, she makes it look negligible. Director of dance at Santa Monica College, this choreographer/soloist does not so much perform as demonstrate. We see her highlight the movement ideas and contrasts in a piece, but she doesn't make them matter.

Yet Duncan's legacy still draws those who long to see the truly expressive dancer who can make us feel deeply and advance our thoughts.

Students in Santa Monica College's dance program are being given the opportunity to pursue their studies in the mecca of dance--New York City. Under an agreement recently signed by officials of the two-year college, qualified dance students will be guaranteed admission to New York University as juniors to continue their education. The agreement represents the first time that NYU's dance program has entered into a partnership with a community college, and the first time Santa Monica College has made such an arrangement with a four-year institution outside California.
