Versatility pays.

I have been reading the magazine since the early '90s and it's great, but I would love to see an article on dancers who are truly versatile. Very often you cover someone who is great at ballet or super at tap, but what about those who are phenomenal in every style? I myself performed with a ballet company, but I always looked up to dancers who could master a range of styles. I think that it's especially important that young dancers see what versatility can do to help them succeed.

DM Responds: We agree that mastering a range of styles makes sense these days, especially as dance companies diversify their repertoires. While we have profiled dancers who straddle several genres, like Bill Evans (Oct., 2003) and Desmond Richardson (Feb., 2003), we are always interested in hearing about more.
