We would like for you to meet
someone very special . . . *

What does it mean — to "make" a dance?

In the weeks ahead, Gloria McLean — one of America's pre-eminent dancers —

will help you discover how to do that.

For a sample, click on the Dream Image above.

Gloria calls the image above a "snapshot."

Do you recognize yourself in it?

What is your first memory of dancing?

In the weeks ahead, we will create dances with Gloria.

4 dances made at SUNY Brockport

Linda Lewett improvised with the dancers,

that would show off the dances.
