When I was growing up in San Francisco, our public television station, KQED, would broadcast modern dance and I loved it. I think it was probably Twyla Tharp. I was mesmerized! I took tap and ballet but I had never seen people moving their bodies like that before. When I got older, I took modern and jazz dance. And now I go to The Joyce Theater often. I credit public television for my love of modern dance. I’m grateful for Thirteen!
