To pick up a theme I first heard from Sara Gratiot, different people learn
things different ways.

Some learn more easily from graphic, visual cues, like Pillings. Some people
learn better from written descriptions. Some people get it after they've
walked it, a kinetic style of learning. Some people learn better from oral
input, like talk throughs.

This is a laudable attempt to provide a *variety* of means for learning the
program because a variety of people are expected to attend.. It is not an
indication that Toronto area dancers are stupid, by any means.

I'm surpised that you would even suggest such a thing in jest.
