I want to go back to Florence. It is a wonderful city, and I didn't get to see nearly enough of the sights, the museums, or Tuscany in general. However, I am not so sure if a Dressing for Dance theme is necessarily one that I find as enticing as a Janet Arnold colloquium. I guess that I will have to wait until there is more information in order for me to make a decision. It's still early in the game.

In the meantime, nothing says that I can't visit that fabulous city next year, this time with my ballistabob, costuming symposium or not.

Here's to hope.

(BTW, the proceedings of last year's colloquium are now online. Yay!)
