Annamarie Pluhar writes (9 November) that she feels that polished
demonstrations don't attract dancers and that she finds them boring.

I personally find that watching a well-coordinated, well-rehearsed
demonstration of high-quality SC dancing can be interesting and
even inspiring. I think it's important that aspiring dancers
see what can be achieved - otherwise there will be no incentive to
improve technique. A good demonstration is very much a performance
and as such ought to be interesting to watch.

Demonstrations have a place as "adverts" for SCD. If a team works
well together and if the dancers are enjoying what they do, as well
as doing it well, then that will come across to the audience, whether
or not they are dancers themselves.

Regards

Iain.
