If you are a member, I imagine that you can find out how many bulletins they print and/or how much membership revenue HQ gets, and do some simple math. The RSCDS knows how many members it has (at least had last year)! There are quite a few non-member dancers, I'm sure, but that number would be the start of a reasonable estimate. They have also been putting together a directory of active teachers (and hopefully would know how many teaching certificates they've ever granted and perhaps have granted in the last 5 or 10 years). So I'd start with RSCDS HQ, and make educated guesses from there. Keith Graham Atlanta, Georgia, USA
