thanks gavin.<P>at the risk of offending gavin by bypassing his own site (dance expression magazine - see link in his post above), here is a quicker way to get to the ISTD homepage:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.istd.org/" TARGET=_blank>http://www.istd.org/</A> <P>what a great looking new-look site. the homepage has an animation, which makes it a little slow, and then you have to 'click to enter' so if you want to bypass that too (although its quite fun!), here is the first really useful page:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.istd.org/main.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.istd.org/main.html</A> <P>wow! this site gets more and more impressive....<P>here is an overview of the imperial ballet syllabus, which angelica mentioned earlier:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.istd.org/dancestyles/imperialballet/intro.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.istd.org/dancestyles/imperialballet/intro.html</A> <P>(amazingly, i found this mis-spelling of cecchetti's name: 'Checchetti', at one point...just a typo, obviously, but still!
)<P>anyway, gavin, i've enjoyed looking at this site and am impressed by a number of its features, but can't find anything about the syllabi there (except of course the general philosophical overview type-thing, as with the 'imperial ballet' link above). am i missing something?<P>thanks for introducing me to this site.
