The owners of the Iowa site where "Field of Dreams" was filmed have put the place up for sale. Don and Becky Lansing say they love the land, which has been in Don Lansing's family for more than a century, but they think it's time to give it up. The asking price for the 193-acre property is $5.4 million. The movie, released in 1989 with Kevin Costner as its star, was based on the book "Shoeless Joe" by W.P. Kinsella. The site has been a popular tourist destination ever since, with the family maintaining the baseball diamond built by Universal Studios.

The appearance by the Paul Taylor Dance Company over the weekend at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts marked something of a historic occasion. With this engagement, the 3-year-old Cerritos Center matched the number of performances given by modern dance companies on all the stages of the Los Angeles Music Center during 30 years of operation. Of course, just about any Taylor program offers reasons to celebrate, with its inventive and sometimes inspired mix of athletic and lyric impulses.
