Communication and Listening
Now that the world is slowly emerging from the pandemic, this blog seems the best possible way to communicate and offer ideas. This post is to state my reflections on my teaching philosophy.

NOTE: During the past few years the way Fly-by-Night Dance has incorporated the internet has gone through many changes. Reasons for this are many, not the least of which is that, as an artist-run organization, resources are limited. The most limited resource is time. Over the past 10 years the amount of "spare" time has decreased for most of us. This is because the work/life/family balance became more and more difficult to keep.
I've been fortunate to have full-time work through the COVID-19 pandemic but that came at a cost of very little time outside of work. To keep balanced, the choice has often been to eliminate bloggingAfter the 2016 election social media became more politicized and toxic. The policies of social media companies did little to mitigate that. About a year ago I decided to simply stop using these platforms and they have been dormant. This decision will be re-evaluated as the company becomes active again following our hiatus during the pandemic.
