Hi,

IMO you can do whatever you want it is just how much
effort you want to put into it, where your priorities
lie and of course the afformentioned $ issue. The
Dance department of Concordia puts on shows in three
separate Montreal locations... Theatre at McGill,
National Theatre School, and Studio 303.

Keeping it in the home sphere I find offers more room
for experimentation and exploration of the art one is
studying in school. Having performances in more
public spheres offers learning of the more practical,
logistical and greater puplic stuff.

In both instances one deals with his/her responsiblity
to his/her audience. I know myself that I don't feel
as nervous performing at Concordia as I do when I am
performing at a 'in town' venue.

Rambling on,

Carey
