and cataloguing its archives while organizing the career materials of Carola Goya and Matteo for future release of their biographies. Goya and Matteo's career spans 70 years in American Dance—seven decades of concertizing, choreography, lecturing, researching, and writing. The team was named "Irreplaceable Dance Treasures" by The Dance Heritage Coalition—an alliance of major dance collections formed to document and preserve America's dance—in its 1999-2000 initiative.
Carola Goya is recognized for her pioneering efforts, which introduced Spanish Dance on the concert stage throughout the U.S. and abroad, beginning in the late 1920s. Matteo is a unique figure in the world of multiracial dance and ethnomusicology. He is the author of two books: The Language of Spanish Dance and Woods That Dance.
