Thank you Robb - I wrote this in about 5 minutes in between two jobs, which
is why I asked everyone to join in - knowing that there were people out
there who knew much more than I. :>)

With regards to 'no dancing... but groups.. Please notice that I have
writen 'as danced by the RSCDS' - I on purpose did not want to distinguish
between the various set ups within the dance genre, but emphasize on the
genre itself and many of these groups have been started by RSCDS people, and
have members of RSCDS in them - There are dancing in India - the
International Branch do have a member there and one in Mexico.

I'm continuing cutting, adding and pasting :>)

Pia
