The year in arts
In 2011, Boston audiences saw a wealth of dance
Solid repertoires, wealth of variety
This wasn’t a watershed year for dance in Boston. No star choreographers emerged here in 2011. No outstanding new troupes formed. No internationally renowned ballet companies visited. And yet it was an almost unimaginably rich year for dance in Boston. From Savion Glover to George Balanchine, we saw every kind of hoofing imaginable. Dance companies came from South Korea, from China, from Spain, from Switzerland, from Cuba, from Brazil - and the home folks weren’t just sitting back and watching.
