Kirby Lindsay posted an article on FremoCentrist.com about dancer Karin Stevens, her dance company, and her activities as Dance Curator at Fremont Abbey Arts Center.
Here’s a brief except of Lindsay’s article…and a link to the post.
“Native Seattleite Karin Stevens is pursuing her dream. She has chosen Fremont, and specifically the supportive community at the Fremont Abbey Arts Center, as the foundation upon which she to build it – her own dance company.
“Stevens gained her dance degree at the University of Washington then further pursued dance in Florida, and California, at Mills College, for graduate work. She and her husband set down roots in the Bay Area which, according to Stevens, has the second largest dance community in the nation (after New York), ‘but after two years, we couldn’t see a future there.’ …”
Lindsay’s article notes that dancers performing in the Karin Stevens Dance March 19 & 20 upcoming show are Caprice Abowitt, Naphtali Beyleveld, Amy Daniel, Morgan Houghton, Brittany Schank, Hannah Taylor, Maia Vague, and Melanie Williams.
