Today's New York Times

Hi, my name is listed in a column of the Dance section of today's New York Times.
Mr. Wally was one-time private student of mine in May. 
He has mastered two Ryukyuan dances.
Mr. Wally will have his demonstration at LMCC next weekend. Please join them. 

Below is today's article of New York Times regarding the project:

through July 14)Endearingly strange
things tend to happen when Mr. Cardona
and Jennifer Lacey get together
- or such was the case, at least, in
their quizzical2011 duet, "Tool Is
Loot." In "The Set Up: Junko Fisher,"
the choreographers join forces again,
this time with the composer Pete
Drungle, the contemporary dancer
Dylan Crossman and the traditional
Okinawan dancer Junko Fisher, constructing
a series of situations that,
according to publicity materials,
question the notion of "the universality
of dance." At 4 p.m., 80 Broad
Street, northwest corner of Broad
and Stone Streets, Lower Manhattan,; free. (Burke)

Below is a copy from the site of the LMCC regarding the program:

Also on July 14th:

The Set Up: Junko Fisher
July 14th - 4:00pm

80 Broad Street

The Set Up: Junko Fisher
Wally Cardona (choreographer)/Jennifer Lacey (choreographer)/Pete Drungle (composer)/Dylan Crossman (dancer)

July 12, 13 and 14, 4PM

80 Broad Street, Northwest corner of Broad and Stone Streets

The Set Up: Junko Fisher begins with an invitation to Junko Fisher, Traditional Ryukyu (Okinawan) Dancer and Folk Singer, to teach an existent form. This direct experience initiates other stages of The Set Up, including indirect experiences, a response and a final stage of reflection ending in performance. The process is designed to mine the layering of superficiality and depth inherent in the assumption of the universality of dance.
