this is excellent. i'm learning a lot. i just KNEW you were out there!
<P>1. ruth osborne came from perth where she was pretty much queen of jazz dance for the last twenty years. <P>she had a highly respected studio for jazz & contemporary dance - mostly show-style jazz. she choreographed shows for TV, for wrest point casino when it was new (in tasmania), that sort of stuff.<P>more recently, she became more, shall we say, 'politically active' in the dance scene, and lead the youth dance group here, so it's not surprising that is what she is doing in her role in canberra.<P>2. so Lisa Clarke is your teacher, katharyn?<BR>and THAT is an RAD school, i take it. what are the others, syllabus-wise....?<P>3. for those who don't know, Woden is a place, not a mis-spelling of wooden!
(i THINK!)<P>4. "We do have a modern company - danged if I can remember what its called." - so, it's REALLY popular and well-publicised, then, i take it?!?
<P>thanks guys for all this...keep it coming!
