“This section of the website includes questions frequently asked by students, patrons, and sometimes other dancers. Additionally, I have included interesting, unusual, and/or important questions NOT so frequently asked, but which deserve to be answered.

I do not hide behind pseudonyms, alter egos or “forums” to express my opinion. When I don’t know the answer to a question, I do some research and find out, or refer the question to someone with more experience and authority. I do not fabricate answers, nor are they comprised of solely my opinion and nothing else. It is my sincere wish that readers learn something new, and I am always happy to field questions.

Do you have a question that you need answered? Email me!”
