Another cheery take on the state of dance in America

Terry Teachout, fellow Arts Journal blogger (among many other, illustrious things), has an interesting and comprehensive column in today’s Wall Street Journal on the “decline and near-disappearance of dance in America.” (“Today” is Saturday November 25.) .
Teachout’s conclusion:
