**Dancing with the Mouse: Format for the Future** October 7-10, 1999

An international conference dedicated to the practitioners who want to
enhance their skills in combining dance technology and dance education.

We encourage anyone who teaches even small portions of dance to
register. This conference has been planned to include hands on work with
software specially related to dance and dance teaching using two 24
station MAC and IBM computer labs. While the focus is to "connect us
technologically," other exciting studio sessions and panels will provide
balance to each day.
