Becky,

No. I am no longer among the six elected but have the great privilege of
representing St John's (Newfoundland) Branch on the Executive - or as I
prefer and one former Chairman of that Branch tacitly accepted: the _othe=
r_
St Johnstoun. I appreciate your confirmation that I am contributing to
communication, the lack of which I have always said is the Society's
biggest
problem.

But far more importantly - joy and soul. A few people have skirted around=

the issue although it is very simple: it cannot be taught. But, it can be=

shown and it is every teacher's responsibility to show it. Not necessaril=
y
(although preferably) in class but definitely on the dance floor.

A propos of which, I have never had the pleasure of being in Marjorie's
class but I have had the wonderful experience of partnerng her in the
Balquidder Strathspey (and a lot of people on this list realise what that=

means - Richard was injured). I rest my case about teaching by example. U=
p
there in the top ten dancing memories of all time.
