Artforum reports that the American Dance Institute will rename itself Lumberyard, ahead of its move into a former lumber yard along Catskill Creek in Catskill. “Our expanded focus better reflects the artists we currently support and the changing, multidisciplinary direction of the contemporary dance and performance fields,” artistic director Adrienne Willis said. In June 2016, Lumberyard moved its headquarters to New York City from Rockville, Maryland, and presented programming at The Kitchen in Manhattan.
