Malcolm, many thanks for posting this. BJM as they sometimes call themselves may be the most improved dance company in the world. <P>About 7 years ago they came to London and received some very poor reviews. Yet when they came back about 2 years ago they were a very dynamic and interesting group who gave me ine of my best dance evenings of the year.<P>One of the problems is knowing where to put them on the site. Having thought it through again, I am moving your post to 'Modern Dance' which given their basic mix of Jazz and modern probably comes closest to the 'right' place for them. Hope this is OK.<P>We have another BJM thread here:<BR> <A HREF="" TARGET=_blank></A>
