Lying is an elementary means of self-defense. ---Susan Sontag

Art is the most beautiful deception of all. And although people try to incorporate the
everyday events of life in it, we must hope that it will remain a deception lest
it become a utilitarian thing, sad as a factory. ---Claude Debussy

None of us know all the potentialities that slumber in the spirit of the population, or all
the ways in which that population can surprise us when there is
the right interplay of events. ---Vaclav Havel

Social Diarist Nicholas Croft reads from Rebecca Stenn's &
Fran Kirmser's 'A Life in Dance' @ Grand Central Terminal.
A Life in Dance @ Grand Central Terminal

'A Life In Dance' aims to broaden the dancer's knowledge of the possibilities available to
them by providing inspiring stories of dancers both known and unknown who have
trodden these paths. It translates these stories in a tangible way with a resource
guide to create a roadmap for a life in dance. ---Fran Kirmser & Rebecca Stenn

Human freedom is the experience of losing oneself within the form of a work of art
in which we find deep understanding. ---Nicholas Croft

The dance community *is* exclusive. But it is an exclusion in service to raising the level of
public dialog to any thematic topic under the sun and making it beautiful to both think
about and talk about. Once one accepts those de-facto 'rules of order', it is possible
to be much happier with what's actually taking place socially. ---Nicholas Croft

There is no definition of beauty, but when you can see someone's spirit coming through,
something unexplainable, that's beautiful to me. ---Liv Tyler

In 2010, harpists Kathryn Andrews and Kristi Shade began searching for music for their
newly-formed ensemble and realized that this particular part of harp repertoire had
yet to be fully explored in a contemporary setting. Coincidently, Katie and Kristi
were born on the same day - November 5, 1982 - making them both Scorpios.

New York Live Arts: January 20 @ 2:00PM = For over 20 years, Ellen Robbins has worked with
young dancers from ages 5 to 18, helping them to stretch their technical modern dance skills
and their imaginations in a warm and supportive atmosphere where improvisation
reigns. The works in Dances by Very Young Choreographers can be humorous,
dramatic, lyrical, or abstract, but always entertaining.
