I'm confused, though. Does this mean there is no more Donald Byrd company? I thought that was one of the more successful dance troupes around. Or will the Byrd company merge with Spectrum?
I don't think of him as a jazz dance choreographer either. But categories don't mean very much these days

http://seattletimes....35_dance05.html Donald Byrd is a very impressive person with incredible knowledge of dance and a great vision. Seattle's lucky to be gaining such an asset for its dance community.
Didn't know you would have heard the news before our local papers, though. I am a Spectrum fan and couldn't agree more that categories don't mean much. Spectrum has performed several pieces that I would not classify as jazz, including works by Trey McIntyre and Dwight Rhoden, as well as others.
Spectrum performs this weekend at the Kirkland Performance Center. I wonder what kind of work the company will perform with Donald Byrd at the helm.

Thanks for the info, Liebs -- I missed that one! I skip the financial reports sometimes. I think of the Harlem Nutcracker as being successful, because it came here so often!
