Faculty Interviews for the BCCA
(Dan's original article published in the November/December 2002 issue of The Boston Dance Alliance Newsletter)
Having been a resident of Brookline for the past 13 years (1992 Graduate of Brookline High School), and a dance and martial arts instructor for the past 10 years, I have noticed more and more how there are not enough community and culturally inclusive offerings in the town of Brookline and its surroundings. Our proposal is to found a community center where members of Brookline and the surrounding towns could attend lessons in dance, martial arts, fitness, and other recreational activities, at affordable prices, as well as be provided with hosting services for community events, and practice facilities for local dance companies and the like. The city of Cambridge, for example, has been successful in such community services. Notably, the Dance Complex provides a full array of arts offerings from around the world. In Brookline, the Brookline Academy of Dance, formally Ballet, Etc., as well as the Brookline School of Music, continue to provide great dance and music offerings. Yet, the competition for teaching and practice space is fierce, and the talents and rich culture of many local arts educators remain untapped. In light of the growing demand, creating another venue for the many talented teachers would not only provide great job opportunities, but also expose the community to more culture, and increase the level of integration. There are currently very few cultural offerings that tailor to the Chinese, Vietnamese, Russian, Latin, certain sections of the Jewish community, and other communities in Brookline and its surrounding towns.
