The Dana Tai Soon Burgess Dance Company received a rousing ovation after its March 18 performance at the National Dance Institute New Mexico Dance Barns as the founder and artistic director returned to his hometown to premier the 25th anniversary season and to be welcomed at a pre-performance reception with a proclamation by City Councilwoman Renee Villarreal. Schoolmate and former Project Runway runner up Patricia Michaels, Burgess’s Korean-American mother, Anna Kang Burgess, board members and friends traveled to Santa Fe for the occasion.  The multicultural audience was moved by Burgess’s “Margin,” capturing the immigrant experience.  He is the first choreographer-in-residence at the National Portrait Gallery and a cultural envoy for the State Department.
