The values emphasized at Summer Stages-supported experimentation, multi-generational cooperation, respect for audiences, inspired teaching and the value of a whole life spent in dance-are values that have shaped and expanded my own and those of my dancers. - David Parker, Artist in Residence, 2000-2007)
