Well, goodness, now that the academie knows that I'm hoping to make it down I 
don't really have much choice in the matter, do I? ;)

Thank you for the compliment, Bryan!  And thank you to all the members of the 
Isenfir dance practice for making me feel more than welcome and greatly 
appreciated.  Something that unfortunately doesn't happen enough in the SCA.

For the record, guest teaching was a great experience and I recommend it 
unto all academie members.  It's such a rare pleasure to work with a group who 
a) know each other and b) aren't sick to death of your teaching style. And 
a great way to meet other dancers who maybe don't get to travel around much.

Speaking of teaching, when is the next proposed dance symposium (I recall it 
being discussed a while back, but since I was mid-move, I didn't write it 
and when/where/who do I need to submit class proposals to?
