djb, that story about Lenin makes me cringe! And it seems Basheva has a mild dislike of the ineffective modern method of education! If it makes you feel any better, we're not that much better off in England.

Everyone seems to have ignored the fact (or avoided it), that dancers are some of the UNHEALTHIEST eaters ever created. <P>Luckily, this fact seems, for the most part, to have been kept hidden from the general public - so much so that now, the general public will go to a restaurant to eat what they THINK dancers eat. (Or maybe they won't) Now if they really KNEW what dancers ate, it would probably become an instant success.<P>Seems to remind of the fashion world's borrowing of the leg-warmer/dance bag chic of the 70's/80's.

Don't forget chocolate covered nuts for protein.

Maggie, no, not a set painter -- a "sat" painter: he sat while the others painted.<P>Tanzen, it doesn't make me feel better knowing that England's not much better off; it did make me feel better, though, when my friend said that the girl was embarrassed by her mistake when he told her he was talking about Vladimir Lenin. At least she didn't say "Who?"<P>Wordfox, maybe the point of the restaurant is not to imply that dancers have a healthy diet, but rather to lure dancers in so they'll eat something healthy!

I’d love to eat at a restaurant where they actually publish the calories and grams of fat per dish on their menu. If I order a glass of lemonade will it be served to me in a ballerina pointe shoe?<P>------------------<BR>Michael Goldbarth

I like the restaurants that have two sets of menus - one for the woman and one for the man. It's so romantic.<P>What's the difference you ask? Her's has no prices writtin on it.<P>YEA!!
