    Description: Doug Adams' interest in the arts began very early in his life. When he was in elementary school, he joined both a dance choir and a drama group that was part of a Congregational Church in Rockford, Illinois. He received a reminder of the role that sacred dance could play in worship when he was at Duke. There a visiting professor of Russian Orthodox studies taught that the arts were a major part of Christianity in the East. "Part of it was that the early church councils in the East pronounced that the non-verbal arts are coequal with verbal expressions as a mode of doing theology. (from Carol Egan, "Special Ceremony to Honor Doug Adams," Berkeley Voice, November 20, 1997, p 14.) Pacific School of Religion had embraced dance and drama. Ted Shawn danced there in the 1930s. Anna Halprin took classes on drama and gave lectures on sacred dance. Sacred dance pioneer Margaret Palmer led workshops and performed from the fifties through the seventies. Adams was a great promoter for the sacred in performance arts, moving images, and art. The photo above is taken from one of his workshops on sacred dance. He also became a close friend with sacred dance pioneer Margaret Palmer, donating her archives to the GTU. Here are a few of his activities: Member, board of directors of The Scared Dance Guild from 1970-2007; it's president from 1977 to 1979. Influenced and supported dance choirs, dancers and dance companies, especially in the Bay Area. Invited Carla De Sola to move from New York to PSR through CARE to teach. Published his master's thesis on Congregational Dancing in Christian Worship. Collected and published over 40 pamphlets--mostly on dance--through his publishing company, The Sharing Company. Edited Dance As Religious Studies with Diane Apostolos-Cappadona.
