-questions frequently asked by students, patrons, and  other dancers

-interesting, unusual, and/or important questions which deserve to be answered

-versions of articles prepared for classes, troupes, and workshops

I don’t hide behind pseudonyms, alter-egos or “forums” to express my opinion. If I don’t know the answer to a question, I do research and find out, or refer the question to someone with more experience and authority. I don’t fabricate answers, nor are they comprised solely of my opinion.  I don’t simply regurgitate what I’ve heard from other dancers.

It’s my sincere hope that readers learn something new.
