Other than  PDO's page (of course!)  do you have any favorite ballroom dance pages that you frequent on facebook?  There are tons and tons of ballroom pages on facebook.  I think it would be nice to have a list, here in the link sub-forum, of any that strike you as good resources. What ids of things do you find useful on a ballroom facebook page? 

I like the BYU page -- lots of notices about upcoming events and photos of older performances, without being too busy.

Thoughts, anyone?

here's another one.  Ballroom dancing.  It appears to have been around and mostly inactive for quite some time, but now, it seems they're trying to revitalize including some online discussion.

My partner just told me about Ballroom Index.  A very good site.

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

Indeed. I am currently working through the Grey Book so it will be very useful for me.

good catch! 

I find FB to be a mixed bag - the pages start off findebut they don't develp because there are limited tools...

True.  That's probably because people are using facebook for all sorts of things that it was never intended to do. Maybe FB and its tools will eovle as more businesses push the envelop.  There's a ton of information there already, though.  Great business networking opportunities, as well.

Thats the magic word - network - its a very dangerous place to upload anything truly personal that you might share witha real friend.

BTDT.  Learned that lesson long before I joined facebook.  Besides,now, I have almost as many friends who use it for business as pleasure.  FB is evolving.

There are tons and tons of dance studios that have a page, btw.  Some pages are definitely more equal than others.  Grin

One thing I have found is that a lot of studios have a main page and add a separate page for special events.
