Selected Shorts: Dance in America
About Dance in America
From ballet and Balanchine to tap and hip-hop, we present rich and eloquent writing about the beauty and magic of American dance, as well as short fiction inspired by the new collection Dance in America, published by the Library of America. With a special appearance by Carmen de Lavallade. Hosted by Patricia Kalember.
Selected Shorts is produced by Symphony Space and broadcast on more than 150 stations around the country. The Selected Shorts podcast consistently ranks as one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes. The series began in 1985 and enjoys sold-out performances to this day. Selected Shorts was conceived with a simple premise: take great stories by well-known and emerging writers and have them performed by terrific actors of stage and screen. Featuring stories around a lively theme, the favorite works of a guest author, or a special collaboration, each Selected Shorts event is a unique night of literature in performance.
