Here's the latest in the series, written by Sharon Viles. She attended a performance of The Missouri Contemporary Ballet and was impressed by Columbia having its very own dance company. After meeting the Artistic Director, Karen Grundy, and her dancers, she decided to get involved. She is a member of its board of directors.
