Yes, when I read "65", thought that was a tad "nippy". Remember dancers are wearing thin, usually one layer of costume, and their muscles HAVE to stay warm. Not gonna happen at 65 degrees farenheit, unless they are moving constantly, which is not the case.

It is interesting to quote from the (now) somewhat outdated manual of Classical Dance, by Grazioso Cecchetti. Right after the virtues of raked studios are extolled, it reads: "The studio must never be over-heated; at most the temperature is around 56F (14 C)."<BR>

I had a teacher cancel classes in university because the studio was too cold some mornings for 8:30 am class. The university didn't understand why either. I would have liked to see an administrator do the opening on six on an ice cold floor, lol.

I also had a teacher in college who cancelled classes for the same reason. We also had a pianinst who had a tendency not to show up. My teacher would call her at home to get her out of bed.<P>I will have to side with the dancers here, and add that I have found theater managers to be some of the most stingy misers this side of a Dickens tale. Surely the theater could have warmed the venue earlier if they had really wanted to.
