Greetings all,  
I would also like to thank Star for her presentation 
and everyone who contributed their ideas.  Someone 
suggested having dancers listen to the music first.  
Some basic music education might also be helpful
for inexperienced listeners.      
We talked about the importance of giving positive 
feedback to beginners as well as experienced dancers.
We talked about when instructors stay out of the dance
as well as some of the challenges of calling a dance.
Star also showed us a way of carrying the dance steps 
on cards for easier reference. 
Thomas of Tenby
