By day three at the Dance/USA conference, I found it most interesting that the theme of honesty, authenticity, and being true to oneself emerged in most of the sessions I attended. This integrity I’m sure is also important in music, and probably most other art disciplines as well.
Attending a roundtable with dancers, I realized that they face a lot of the same issues as composers, and really probably all artists.
At the Dance/USA conference’s opening reception at the House of Sweden, I definitely felt like I was the only composer in the room. This did not, however, make me feel too out of place.
