What she said!  Congrats to Rowen.  Not only was this her first foray at 
teaching at a University, and not only did she have the LARGEST attendance 
of any of the 4 dance classes, but I think her class may have been the 
largest of this entire University.

Also, congrats to Greg.  The University of Atlantia bestowed an honorary 
Doctorate on him for all his hard work and support to help the U of A get to 
where it is today.

>From a dance perspective, this was one of the most successful Universities I 
have seen.  For our four classes, we had a total combined attendance of well 
over 100 students, including many many folks who had never danced before.  
Our flyers for the Dance Symposium were quickly snapped-up, as were the new 
Academie handouts, and there was a lot of enthusiasm in the air.  We done

Let me be the first to announce to the Academie that the dance classes at 
University yesterday were a success!!  We had a huge room (Thanks Stephan!) 
and we needed it!!  We had phenomenal numbers for our 4 dance classes.  The 
1st hour was Beginning Italian and was composed of brand new dancers, those 
with some ECD knowledeg and a few academie members. I would estimate that 
25-30 attended that class.
The 2nd hour was Intermediate Italian and we had many of the same folks stay 
on...I guess they weren't scared away by the 1st hour (YEAH!).  The 3rd hour 
was my class (Beggining ECD) 1st time teaching at University...At one 
time we had 6 sets of six...Yes, boys and girls, that is at least 36 people! 
  Some of the folks hadn't attended the Italian classes but many of them 
stayed on for 3 or all 4 classes. I saw a bit of the last hour (Advanced 
ECD) and some of those there were the ones who started with us for the 1st 
class and had never danced before...Brave souls, eh?

I wasn't able to attend the Feast and Ball that evening and would really 
like to hear if our success in the daytime transfered over to the 
evening...I hope so!

See you all at Nothing But Dance!
