Dance Takeover

Wow, what a way to start off a season!

So the most recent news for DanceATL: we're taking over the city! Ok, maybe not literally, but I love the hyperbole of our Creative Loafing shout out: "the meetings, blog, and events calendar of the new dance service org DanceATL have become an important focal point for Atlanta's independent dancers and choreographers as they gather and plan for their long overdue takeover of the city."  That's in the "Best Sign that ATL's Dance Scene Rules" in the Best of ATL 2011 issue that came out last week. And congratulations go out to gloATL for readers' choice for best dance company (2nd year in a row) and Dance Truck's PLOT for best dance performance! Now if Atlanta Magazine only had a dance category on their best of... (hint hint). And don't forget this is after the recent cover story on dance in CL as well--we love you guys, too! Thanks!

And in reviews, I have to go where my job/bias lies and start with CORE Performance Company's 25th year in Decatur and recent performance, The Point:

  • a preview and review by Andrew Alexander in CL, 
  • review by Cynthia Perry on ArtsCriticATL, 
  • and an interview with artistic director Sue Schroeder on WABE's City Cafe.

Then we have gloATL's Maa' with ASO and Sonic Generator (I have the feeling I won't find all mentions of this show):
There was also Wabi Sabi (aka Atlanta Ballet dancers doing site-based work, this time at the Atlanta Botanical Garden) had a review in CL by Andrew Alexander and review by Cynthia Perry on

And last but not least, 2 Kids and a Dream's performance SHE Created It also got a preview in CL and review by Daryl Foster on

Let me know if I missed anything, guys, and yay dance!
