*In Greek mythology, Terpsichore ( /tərpˈsɪkəriː/; Τερψιχόρη) "delight of dancing" was one of the nine Muses, ruling over dance and the dramatic chorus. She lends her name to the word "terpsichorean" which means "of or relating to dance". ~ wikipedia

Terpsichore In Sneakers: Post-Modern Dance by Sally Banes changed my life. I read it, begged for work at Walker Art Center, and ended up coordinating the New Dance USA Festival in 1981 under Nigel Redden (25 dance companies in 7 days). What had once been an addiction to dancing (myself) morphed into a love affair with the field of dance. I share my love of the very visual form here and on Facebook,where I have a page, Terpsichore*: Movement As Muse and a group for discussing dance, dance criticism and dance in social media. Talk to me. And Enjoy! ~ Susan Davis Cushing
