Dance is in Trouble again

Pinched directly from the Caldrithig discussion yahoo group:

"Message #1976 of 2003 < Prev | Next >
Attention all dancers or people who plan to go to dance practice
reguarly but previously couldn't due to scheduling and/or location:

Please take a moment of your time to consider future dance practices.
A little poll to get the new calendar year rolling:

1. Are you in favour of biweekly or weekly dance practices?
2. Does Tuesday evening suit you or is there another day and time that
would suit you better?
3. Do you have another site in mind for dance practice or do you
prefer the Heron Road site?

Please reply either by posting to this yahoo group, or by email to me
at organismism at gmail dot com

Feedback is much appreciated on this matter, as it may make the
difference between booking space or not booking space for dance practices.

In Service,
Lady 'Withe, the new "Keeper of The Dance Bag" "

Re: [Caldrithig_Discussion] Dance Practice Answers

You only have four responses - if our dance community has dwindled to the point
that our regular attendance is a constant struggle to find 4 people I'm not
really sure how viable dance is. I love dance but I wonder if we can support it
as a regularly scheduled activity if the response to "when is dance good" is so
poor.

*** Feedback is most welcome at this time!
Please let me know what you think we should do about dance practices, I would hate to see them dwindle to nothing and for Caldrithig to become a 'Stick Jock Town'.
