Best Local Artist-In-Residence

Thom Lewis

STAFF PICK: As an artist-in-residence, Thom Lewis works intensely with individual classrooms and devises modern dance routines based on perceived interests and areas of strengths. The results are nothing less than magical. At a recent culminating performance, we witnessed once-reticent second- and third-graders literally transformed. (One learning-disabled child who'd refused to participate in P.E. for the past two years actually chose to do a solo turn.) The parents, of course, were spellbound. Lewis is direct, respectful and serious in his approach to teaching dance. He treats his students as equal collaborators, while at the same time pushing them to achieve their highest potential.
