Hi Richard,

I developed two university dance courses that were totally online (through
the Internet). One course is Dancing in Cyberspace: Creating with the
Virtual Body and uses Lifeforsm software. The other course is
Reconstructing a late work of Hanya Holm - both are in process now. I've
also been doing collaborations (e.g. performance and/or experiments with
technique classes) with participants in Vancouver, Canada and participants
in New York. I wrote three articles I could send you.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to contact me personally.

(P.S. My Ph.D thesis is "Collaborative Online Methods in Dance Education
and specifically focuses on dance and the Internet)
