In reply to: Dino 's message, "what % of champ dancers will pack it in if there is no O (and most likely no worlds either); maybe that's why they are still trying to have something. young champs will ride it out; older may just move on, and that impacts all around" on 10:45:58 08/07/20 Fri

[> [> [> [> Subject: Our TCs would never allow any of their dancers to be video taped. They are not willing to put their choreography out in any form of social media. Finding any of their choreography posted by dancers is reason for automatic dismissal from the school.

No on-line feis for us

If online feises focused on trad speed hard shoes and trad sets, then everyone could participate. No choreog worries, small dance floors are OK, no tricks, no jumping, no spinning, no toe block work. A great compromise, IMHO.

But it'll never happen. TPTB won't go for it.
