i am from the usa, east coast to be exact. have any of you danced,taught or studied in NYC. I see a big diference in methods and can almost always tell when i'm reading a post from someone outside the US.<BR>we are flooded w/dance associations, studios,<BR>companies and it is easy for a less than <BR>mediocre teacher to be certified. It's also<BR>hard to keep advanced programs up because<BR>the best usually take off for NYC, the schools and opportunites are endless.<BR>do you have the same thing where you are?<p>[This message has been edited by j (edited October 25, 2000).]

I am not sure that this thread belongs in this part of the board - but I will try to give you a short picture of dance here in San Diego.<P>There are several good teachers and schools here in San Diego, but instead of pooling their resources to really produce something terrific - they are all divided up into their little fiefdoms. As of now we have 6 Nutcrackers scheduled. In the past occasionally they have sort of tried to get together - but it has never last for very long.<P>We do produce some wonderful dancers here. Some chose to stay and be a bigger fish in a smaller pond - and some do leave to try - and succeed - in a bigger pond. But many then return later to teach here because it is their home - and it is a very beautiful city in which to live.

You're right, Basheva. Therefore this thread is moved to Studio.

dear j - i can't email you, as your email is not public, so apologies for putting this suggestion up publicly! Image <P>if your formatting is a conscious choice, by all means keep 'doing it your way', but i just wondered if you realise that you don't need to press 'Enter', in the Reply form, to move from line to line? if you let the software do its own word wrapping, line by line, the text will then stretch to fit the board page, when you submit it.....hope this helps?

thanks, j - but just to explain, your email is not 'visible' in your profile (i ssume you elected to keep it not visible to the public, which is fine) - therefore it is not visible to us staff people here either, without an exhaustive search of 264 (all member) records....to check this for yourself, click on the little square with the question mark on it, just above any of your posts. <P>if you WANT to make any changes to your profile at any time, you CAN edit it, by going into preferences (i think that's how..)
