To continue:<P>There is something like a 2 to 1 majority for keeping the name as it is. <P>So, criticaldance it is.

Grace, don't be sad (even though you should be for trying to stack the votes). As far as I am concerned, this issue is never dead. We are a dynamic site that changes with the flow. If more people complain about the name, we will look at it then. We should probably leave this thread up to gauge how people react to it. Newcomers may swing things the other way.<P>And, Grace, cheer up, will ya? I hate to see you sullen.

I know no dance fan who is "pure as driven snow." Perhaps it is a higher calling in the land of the rinkadoos.

Speaking of "pure as the driven snow" has anyone peformed the "Snow" dance from Nutcracker, last matinee of a long run? Have you noticed (of course you have!) the quality of the snow that gets dropped by that last performance (that same snow that gets swept up and used over and over again?) Hairpins, dirt, bits of this, bits of that. Unspeakable things falling about the dancers heads......

Maggie, have you seen the snow in Mark Morris' "The Hard Nut?" Lots and lots and lots... quite over the top but mostly "pure," i.e. no hairpins and other debris.

Stuart,<BR>I think you have to be Australian to really understand what Grace was saying.

Grace, nothing personal, you just reminded me of the snow scene in Nutcracker, and I'm so glad I'm not ever doing Nutcracker again. I close. <BR>Maggie

Close the thread? But, I haven't voted yet.<P>I like Grace's suggestions: dancestance, dancexpress, and dancescene. However, dancexpress and dancescene are taken, both belong to someone in Texas.<P>I like aboutdance, but it's also taken. <P>Dancestance is available, catchy, says what it is (i.e. positions/opinions on dance), has 2 hard-hitting syllable, is easy to remember and easy to dance to. I vote for that.<P>If you want to change the name, act fast. I ran a check on lots of names, including adance, alldance, dancedance, etc., all are taken.<P>
