Sharing the wealth.

In other parts of the world February 2 was Groundhog Day. But in San Francisco the mayor proclaimed it ODC Dance Commons Day for the grand opening of the ODC School's heralded new space ("Dance Matters," Oct. 2005). In addition to inviting the public to visit five spacious studios, light-struck lobby, and administrative offices, ODC Dance founder and artistic director Brenda Way announced a new partnership with the Rhythm & Motion studio, directed by Consuelo Faust. This venture adds a World and Fusion curriculum to ODC's modern, ballet, and release technique focus: Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, Casino Rueda, jazz, jazz blues, hip hop, tango, salsa, tribal belly dance, and West African dance. A smart move by Ms. Way--no surprise--to bring two neighboring studios with complementary offerings under one roof. Even before counting the Rhythm & Motion classes, the ODC School, directed by Kimi Okada, had doubled its offerings, including a full ballet curriculum under former San Francisco Ballet dancer Augusta Moore.
