            The Kodiak Arts Council goes to great lengths to bring quality entertainment to "The Rock." At least as far as New York City.

            The council's performing arts coordinator, Molly Miller, just returned from "The Big Apple" where she attended the annual conference of the Association of Performing Arts Presenters.

 

--          (Arts Council  1                                  "and that's where...in N.Y.C.")

 

            One of the themes of the conference was promoting arts during an economic downturn.

 

--          (Arts Council 2                      "There was a lot ... engaging audiences.")

 

Miller, who grew up in Kodiak and danced professionally in New York, is now in charge of booking acts for upcoming seasons of Kodiak's performing arts series. She said that next year's slate of entertainment is pretty well set but she's on the look-out for future acts to wow Kodiak audiences.

With 1,000 acts showcased at the conference there was plenty of research available for Miller and the other attendees. She estimates that on one day she watched around 15 acts perform. And while she saw some great performances, after awhile watching even great acts can be a chore.

 

--          (Arts Council 3                                   "there was one ... got to see.")

 

            The performing arts coordinator job is a part-time, federal grant funded position with the Kodiak Arts Council. Miller said the trip to New York was paid for in part by that grant.

 

--          (Arts Council 4                            "so that was ... me more excited.")
 

            Miller returned from New York Thursday.

            This season of the Kodiak Arts Council's performing arts series continues this month with "Tap Kids." The young and innovative tap dancing troupe takes to the stage of the Gerald C. Wilson Auditorium on Saturday , January 30th at 8 p.m.
