Episode Two of Art Elevated, Changes at loveDANCEmore, Beth Krensky, Aisha Lehmann

loveDANCEmore announces that Arin Lynn will replace Samuel Hanson as editor of the dance publication. “As I leave the position, I would like to thank our talented writers, as well as the artists whose work we’ve catalogued and critiqued in over 250 articles, reviews and digest pieces,” Hanson writes in a press release. “I also want to thank the many photographers who volunteer their time to document dance — both for our publication and for dance companies and independent producers across our state. If you haven’t already, I encourage you to take a look at our virtual exhibition, Through the Eyes of a Dancer, a collaboration with the Utah Division of Arts and Museums. We hope to present this exhibition, which celebrates Utah dance photography, in a gallery show in 2023 or 2024.”
