We're 5 years old!!!!!

I don't even know exactly when it was. I registered the domain name and put up the site in late July 1998 -- around the 21st (?) And put up a little Front Page message board which was up for awhile, and then put up our first real message board -- the UBB -- in October of 1998. And, so, well, here we are.
Give me an annivesary present -- POST. We've gotten away from our scintillating debates on aesthetic issues. More people are posting about performances WHICH IS TERRIFIC! Being greedy, I'd like more. Don't be shy. Dip your toe in. You saw something? Say "I saw X and kinda liked it." That's a start. When you realize that no one will jump in and say, "You LIKED IT? What planet are YOU from?" maybe next time you'll tell us why -- or what you didn't like.
The Young Dancers and Special Groups forums talk lots -- it's the General Discussion group forums that need encouragement. Read something? Post about it. Someone says something that strikes you as interesting? Chime in.
Thanking you in advance.......

From an out an out neophyte who would have been slogging along behind the eight ball when it comes to understanding ballet from an educational trajectory, I can not thank you enough. In addition, the insight you've helped me gain as an audience member is without a doubt much more than "pretty good"... So pop the corks and we'll all drink to the health of Ballet Alert! :bouncing: :huepfen: :gossip: :jump:
