"...The pageantry was striking, but the deepest impressions in this staging of Verdi's tragedy came from the personal moments with Karen Slack's despairing Aida, Issachah Savage's conflicted Radamès, and Tuija Knihtilä's haughty Amneris. 8) True Story (Kathy Dunn Hamrick Dance Company)..."

"..."I am also not a fast choreographer, in the sense of I don't want to just produce work," Bustamante says. "I did that for a number of years, and I felt that the actual quality of my work diminished toward the end, because it was very much about putting stuff out." So when choreographer and ACC faculty member Kathy Dunn Hamrick asked him to set a work for her company's Bountiful program, which it presents this weekend, Bustamante considered his calendar, the rehearsal schedule, and a roster that included several unfamiliar dancers..."
"...After an eight-day voting period, three choreographers – a curator chosen by Irons, plus two choreographers picked by the curator – have two weeks to make their films before they premiere online.

"...That's local choreographer Darla Johnson (Johnson/Long Dance Company, Big State Productions) reflecting on her work with students in the Austin Community College Dance Department, where she's been working for several years to help develop the dance-makers of the next generation. ACC's program has long been under the radar in the Austin arts scene but is noteworthy for its faculty of strong local choreographers (Johnson, José Luis Bustamante, Kathy Dunn Hamrick, and Allison Orr, among others), the regular opportunities it offers students to make and present work (such as this weekend's Spring Choreographers' Showcase), and that supportive environment to which Johnson was referring...."

"...Kate Warren Having the word "circuitous" in the name of one's dance company might suggest a meandering nature in its founder, but there's nothing roundabout in Kate Warren's approach to her chosen art form. Over four decades, her presence on the local dance scene can be tracked in an unwavering straight line: in the Seventies, performing with experimental modern dance duo Dee McCandless and Gene Menger; then moving with Austin Repertory Dancers in the early Eighties and its successor, Sharir Dance Company, where she spent most of the rest of the decade, becoming associate artistic director and director of the Sharir Company School; performing with Johnson/Long Dance Company in the first half of the Nineties; co-founding and running the Hamrick/Warren Dance school with friend and artistic partner Kathy Dunn Hamrick (1991-present); founding and running the studio Cafe Dance (1995-present); and, finally, founding her own company, Kate Warren/Circuitous Dance (2013-present)..."
