I agree completely Basheva (and all others *S*) we do need to realize our limitations as well. Next year I'm taking a sabbatical of sorts from my satellite studio setting and "just" teaching/directing at our main studio here. (eleven years of extra travels--I need a break!) Additionally (as I stated in our "merit of teaching 3-5 yr olds) I'm taking a year off from the three-year old class structure to check out some new work/music and re-work my own syllabus goals for that age group. <P>Just dropping even those few classes will make a huge difference in how I approach the rest of my work...I'm even considering taking off for the summer
but I feel too many students need a local outlet to dance at as they cannot all afford summer intensives elsewhere.
