Dear Friends,

Feel like making a contribution to the greater dance

If so, please considerer submitting an article,
letter, or review to the Letter of Dance.

I'm particularly interested in the following material:

* Teaching tips, articles on teaching dance, letters
to the editor, or modified class handouts that
document how *you* teach for the second of two
"teaching dance" theme issues to be published in

* Amusing jokes, top ten lists, joke articles, or
other spoofs for our annual April Fools issue.

* New reconstructions or new interpretations of
familiar dances.

* Groups of articles that might become their own
"theme issue" (Grab your friends and brainstorm--I'm
open to pretty much anything here).

* Reviews of the new dance cds and dance related books
that have been published in the past year (especially
Santucci, Payne's _Alman in Britain_, Brooks' _The Art
of Dancing in 17th century Spain_, and Nevile's _The
Eloquent Body_.)

* Event reports or critiques describing new and
interesting dance events

* How-to articles describing how to do a specific
dance-related activity (how to cultivate new teachers,
how to run a ball, how to start a local practice, how
to dance Arbeau's courante, how to reconstruct dances,
how to dance like a nobleman, etc.)

* Historical articles on a particular subject (Morris
dancing in period, Masques).

* Anything else you can dream up!

I'm particularly interested in receiving material from
first time contributors.
