My friend Barry Blumenfeld (with support from Yoav Kaddar and others) spearheaded a men's dance project for the opening gathering at the NDEA/ADTA Conference in Chicago. I was trusted with the responsibility of developing the concept, guiding the diverse and imaginative creative contributions of the participants and choreographing the framework for those contributions. Why I Can't Not Dance was performed on November 6, 2014. Suzanne Knosp created and performed the music. Doug Risner supplied quotes by boys and young men on being a male dancer. Many long-time friends (including Pat Debenham, Clarence Brooks, Chris Rutt, E.E. Balcos and Dale Schmidt) joined us. The conferees from the two organizations were deeply appreciative.

Review of William's 75th birthday tour solo concert in Salt Lake City on   August 1 , 2015:

UTAH'S ART MAGAZINE
by   Ann Poore   on   Aug 2 , 2015

" William (“Bill”) Evans’ RDT-sponsored solo concert at the Rose Wagner was completely captivating. The dancer was, by turns, nostalgic, frenetic, smooth, effervescent, hilarious, and always, always an outstanding performer just givin’ it his all.  What a memorable night for those fortunate enough to have been there.

"Had he not kept reminding us that this was his 75 th   birthday tour, it would have been easy to forget – he was that good. Tap is exciting and exacting and Evans is a master dancer and choreographer of both it and of modern dance."
