SF’s New Community Of Dance

ODC/Dance opens up a big new home in San Francisco. “Despite plaudits from dance world luminaries such as Bill T. Jones, the building has yet to attract the same media buzz as the Baryshnikov Arts Center in Manhattan, or the Mark Morris Dance Center in Brooklyn — even though the ODC complex is larger and more expensive than both of those projects. ‘The community idea is not glam, and we’re a culture that likes the star approach. Ultimately, substance can be attractive too, but it’s not sound bites’.”
