Dance Exchange Life after Lerman was good for her old company, if not for the dance scene.

The Liz Lerman Dance Exchange debuted in 1976 with a revolutionary credo: “Dance is for everyone.” Lerman put steelworkers, old folks, and poets onstage with trained dancers, in the process becoming a major modern-dance figure. So it was big news when she announced her departure in January. Goodbye to the one local company with a national footprint, right? But so far, the transition has worked out well for the area. New leader Cassie Meador and the rest of the renamed Dance Exchange say they’re dedicated to increasing their local presence. They’ve filled the company’s studios, once dark for weeks at a time, with regular classes, performances, and creative events. Still, the new activities are all over the board, from quilting and parlor games to policy talks, making movement just one of many focuses. The new team clearly gets the “everyone” from Lerman’s original slogan. The “dance” part might be getting lost.

Our Readers Say

, in Harry Potter they tried to be as close to the book as possible, at least in the first movie. The Persy Jackson books are much smlealr than Harry Potter, about half of a a first book, so you'd think it would be easier to fit in. And if they would do, I might give 3-4 stars. Also I did not like Anabeth(Daddario). She definitely does not look like a girl, who grew up training at camp, more like a next door girl. They should've spent a bit more time training the actress, not to mention I was not imressed with her acting at all. Logan Lerman is OK, and he definitely looks cute, but Percy and Anabether are suppose to be much younger. I guess because the Logan is older they've changed many things to reflect that. In the book there is an innocence of a young boy (kind of first-second year Harry Potter), that is completely lost in the movie.
