Kim is presenting on his choreomusical practice, an approach to language, pedagogy, analysis, and music/dance composition. He visited the University of California Riverside department of dance on Thursday, Feb. 14th, where students had a wonderful time learning and putting knowledge into practice. Kim will continue on to the University of Arizona, University of Illinois, and Marymount Manhattan in the coming days.

    Welcome, Kim!

    IGMD is building a new website! Scheduled to go live at the beginning of 2019, the new website will be the the central hub for member benefits and the public face of the guild. It will also:

    • Be the site for discussions among members (currently on the dancemusician email listserv)
    • Allow members to manage all aspects of their membership, including payments, joining any time of the year, conference registration, and more
    • Organize committee work
    • Host the guild journal and present archived documents and media
    • Host the guild calendar, news (blog), and link to social media feeds
    • Simplify administrative tasks, communication

    The website is being updated, with an eye towards collecting and presenting material (archiving) in a way that is useful for members and general visitors to the site.  This includes a new "Library", which includes an archive of each volume of the Journal of the International Guild of Musicians in Dance (new!), a video page (new!), and the Members Section (accessible only to Guild members), and will perhaps house other materials in the future.

    Additionally, in the interest of documenting our history, materials from previous Guild conferences is being archived (new!), and founding documents such as the Guild's charter (new!) are included in the updates.

    I am currently in negotiations with a college to be their permanent dance accompanist.  I have accompanied there for three, semester per diem, and there is now an effort to actually request a line for the job.  Just out of curiosity, can I have some thoughts on what you would charge per sessions that last one hour and twenty minutes each?

    'Preciate it!
