[> Subject: I'd go to Liam Harney in Walpole, MA. I like the way he susses out each child's strengths and weaknesses, and works with them to showcase the former and correct the latter. I also like that he develops his own choreography instead of depending outside to come up with new steps. The school has successful teams as well as top solo dancers. I wish I had sent my now retired dd there.

[> [> Subject: My understanding is that he was asked by the region to step in so that the dancers, who were not to blame for their teachers' cheating, would be able to compete. Otherwise I believe the dancers would have been barred from competition for a year. And that would really not be fair to the kids.

without changing the name to HPK and taking the PK teachers along. Had he, it would eliminate any stigma. I agree, he is a fantastic teacher, however, I would not recommend due to the association with PK.
