Hi caraqueen and welcome to criticaldance. Hope you find plenty to interest you here in the coming months.<P>The Place has dropped the 'Spring Loaded' package and their other festival formats such as 'Turning World'. The exception is 'Resolution!' in Jan/Feb for young companies.<P>However, The Place continues to show a large number of contemporary dance companies and can claim to be the busiest dance venue in Europe. In the past two weeks I have seen there a good young UK company, Red Dragon, plus Ultima Vez and Marie Chouinard. Here is the link to The Place website. The theatre has been renamed 'The Robin Howard Theatre':<P> <A HREF="http://www.theplace.org.uk/html/nav/thfr.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.theplace.org.uk/html/nav/thfr.htm</A> <P>Dance Umbrella is one of the most significant contemporary/modern dance festivals worldwide and runs in London in October/November each year. The format is now heavily weighted to the leading companies worldwide plus a selection of UK companies. The 2002 programme has not been published yet, but here are the contact details for Dance Umbrella:<P>Call: 020 8741 5881 <BR>Email: mail@danceumbrella.co.uk <BR>Web: <A HREF="http://www.danceumbrella.co.uk" TARGET=_blank>www.danceumbrella.co.uk</A> <P>There are a number of other dance festivals around the UK. Can I suggest that you contact The Artists' Development Programme (previously Dance Services) for information. It is a membership organisation, but I believe enquirers are allowed 1 free enquiry. It may be worth subscribing, as their monthly newsletter Juice which has much detail about dance events, seminars, classes etc for the profession:<P> <A HREF="http://www.theplace.org.uk/html/nav/sefr.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.theplace.org.uk/html/nav/sefr.htm</A> <P>Hope this is useful. <P> <BR><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited March 28, 2002).]
