Dear friends and colleagues,
In cleaning up my website I did a little late night surfing and and came upon this in late January of 2011.
We all are so interwoven and one can never know how our intentions and words play out for other people. It was a pleasure to come upon the website of this young and articulate artist, Christopher McDaniel. I had the fortune to give a class in Jacob’s Pillow in 2009 and had a wonderful and diverse group of talented young dancers to work with. One of them was Christopher Charles McDaniel. At that time he danced with DTH and he has just recently joined Los Angeles Ballet.
He was very generous in describing how our class played out for him and has given me his kind permission to put this excerpt and his observations and responses onto the site.
