Bruce Wood Dance Project

The last few weeks have rocked the North Texas dance community. Choreographer Bruce Wood died suddenly. Ann Williams retired from that Dallas Black Dance Theatre that she founded. And the woman who trained many of North Texas’ top dancers, Lily Cabatu Weiss, is stepping away from the barre at Booker T. Washington high school. She stopped by for this week's this week’s Friday Conversation.

The founder of the Bruce Wood Dance Project, perhaps the most esteemed choreographer in North Texas, has died of complications from pneumonia and heart failure. He was 53.
