    Re: Difference Between Briefing a dance and Recapping a Dance

    >The answer is:   Because presumably not everyone is local thus hasn't had the
    luxury of practicing those dances exclusively for weeks ahead of time.  If
    Branches want non-locals to attend events, they must take them into
    consideration.   If they don't want to 'waste valuable time' briefing or walking
    dances for the benefit of non-locals, then they shouldn't promote the event via
    flyers mailed to other branches, on their websites, handouts on tables at other
    balls, etc.  You can't have it both ways:   You either earn your Branch some
    income off out-of-towners--in which case you must consider them--or you don't.

    Thanks for the explanation. It makes me wonder, however, why you feel the
