The Land of 2001 Dances


Berman, Janice, Dance Magazine


NEWS FLASH: This is the beginning of the new millennium.

Oh, great. We began our first year of publishing from California by lying to you. But I am reliably informed, by a scientist who spends a lot of time thinking about such things, that the year 2000 was not it. This, folks, is it: 2001.

Millennial or not, we had quite a year. We changed, we groped, we morphed, we grew. I became steadily more appreciative of the history of Dance Magazine, the richness of its past, the promise of its future. Platitudes--and mini-catastrophes--aside, I am grateful for the year I've spent here.

What have I learned? First, to be careful what I wish for; editing a magazine is a lot harder than wanting to, though far more rewarding. I have a sense that we are reaching a wider dance audience than we did in the past, and that the breadth of that reach has proven disconcerting to some of our readers, intriguing to others, and enticing to newcomers. (And you're all as welcome as flowers in spring, tra-la.) I said it last year and I'll say it this year: Please let us know how we're doing. If there's something you want to see in here, we want to hear about it. If there's something that you'd like to clarify for us, or if we're just plain wrong, please let us know. If you love us, well, that would make our day. Write to us at: Readers Forum, Dance Magazine, 111 Myrtle Street, Suite 203, Oakland, CA 94607. We will answer every letter and publish as many as we can. Or you can email us through our Web site, www.dancemagazine.com.

I promised to talk more about the staff--a solid year ago--and now there are more staff to talk about. Or is it is? Editorial assistant Cheryl Ossola, who leads our proof-readers, will be the person to check with, or, as she'll tell me, with whom to check. She dances, of course. Everyone around here dances. My new assistant, Heidi Landgraf, is a modern dancer. News/Young Dancer Editor Heather Wisner, whose movie stories are just one more thing she's done beautifully during this year, has made the leap from ballet to hip-hop. New York Editor Wendy Perron, who wrote that wizardly piece on Baryshnikov in November, is a known modern-dance entity, still choreographing in what passes for her free time. Stern's Directory Editor Stephanie Forster is a modern choreographer. College Guide Editor Kate Thomgren is a Pilates instructor. Senior Associate Editor K.C. Patrick, who imbues Teach and Learn and our reviews with her distinctive knowledge of schools and companies all over the world, used to be a dance teacher and edited a magazine by that name. Production manager Valerie Whitesell, who designed September's and October's knockout covers, doesn't dance, but she paints. Meredith Winer, our advertising liaison manager, is an artist, too, going to her studio and making things out of clay after pushing all the ads into shape. …
