    As a botanist, I love the idea of imitating plants in dance. Think of how trees sway in the wind... of course, if one wished to do a wilder sort of dance, one could imitate trees crashing to the ground in a high wind. Think of the possibilities for Turkish drops!
    ROFL!!! *now has mental picture of Rachel Brice falling to the floor, yelling, "TIMBERRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!"*

    Thanks, Shanazel, I needed that!

    Dear Shanazel,
    Oh, please, the only fruits really WORTH the trouble to eat them unless cooked in pie crust are nectarines, peaches and guavas.
    Regards,
    The staunch defender of vegetables everywhere,

    A'isha, dear, you are at the top of the list to receive my infamous guava/broccoli fruit cake this holiday season. It comes with peach brandy sauce with an olive oil base, and I'm sure you will love it.

    Dear Shanazel,
    Just like Dear Old Mom used to make!!!
    We used to sell them, but would only accept 18 dollar bills as payment. (The 20 dollar bills are often counterfeit.)
    Happy Hollandaise!!!
    Regards,
    A'isha

    I agree with this statement. I've known a number of teachers over the years who rarely pursued continuing education of any type. Didn't read books about our dance, didn't use the forums, didn't go to workshops... They tended to be nice people, but they remained stuck in the past, and sometimes that did hurt their credibility with students.

    On a related note, I've known some teachers who attended ONLY workshops in the exact same dance style as what they had learned years ago. These teachers limited their ability to grow as dancers by rehashing the same old input, and not exposing themselves to new material.
