4 Questions; 4 very different Choreographers

Uthoff is known for providing opportunities for dancers here in St. Louis, particularly with the New Dance Horizons series. This year, he has combined these two traits with a new addition to the Spring to Dance Series, the Young Choreographer Series.

Here, all four describe their lives, work, and their own favorite pieces of choreography.
