So, by now you have all seen Alyrie's post in Jazz- General about the over-postage of Hall of Fame dances? If not, here's the link.


dance.net . . .


If you take a look around the Jazz boards. Especially in Jazz- General... it's obvious that all the Jazz-ers talk about is Hall of Fame Dances. Kind of annoying, eh? Especially when you're trying to ask a question about switch leaps or axles or whatevers. Your post always seems to get pushed down by the HOF, doesn't it? Well, problem solved! Linh gave us a Jazz- Videos board! Hoorah for Linh! Now the jazz-ers who want to watch videos, talk about provacative clothing, discuss certain dances, et cetera have a place to do it! Thanks so much, Linh!

Now-- here comes a few things to discuss.

1. Make sure you check around the video board once it gets going, just in case the video you're about to post has already been posted. A pet peeve of us at DDN is people DOUBLE posting things. Especially ask the ballet and advice boards about how annoying this gets! So double check and make sure there isn't already a discussion going on about the video you're about to post. If there is-- hop in on that discussion! Simple as pie!

and 2. Stop posting videos on the other jazz boards! Now that we have a seperate place for videos, we don't HAVE to post them on the other boards. It will just push down the important topics on ACTUAL dancing rather than watching dances. A lot of people have been having trouble asking questions about jazz turns, combinations, stretches, et cetera because jazz-ers are paying more attention to the videos rather than the questions that need answering!

Thanks so much to Linh for giving us this board and I hope everyone at DDN uses it wisely! Now, go post your videos-- and then go talk about combinations, turns, and such on the other jazz boards! Get the Jazz forums cleaned up now that we can seperate things a little better!

Happy Jazzing!

I just wanted to give a big all caps THANKS to Linh! I love Hall of Fame as much as the next person, but the jazz boards are for jazz questions and comments... not videos!

Good point but.... the reason why people put HOF vidios under the general jazz catagory is because it gets more attention, you are more likely to get feedback on the vidio and comments. For example I did not even know that this catagory existed until today! If people could get this catagory to be more popular good on ya! but for now I think people are just going to stick to the general catagory for posting vidios.

jazz_lover -- You'd put the video here. The whole point of this forum was to stop the 'What do you think?'s' and 'Is this too provacative?'s'

No more videos should be on the other jazz boards.

This will be of great help to people who want to ask questions! And it will be easier for people who just want to watch videos!

This was a good idea. I just hope new people and others who aren't frequent posters here know to come in here and not the Jazz - Competitions board to post HOF videos or Showstopper videos.

I've PM'd the mods asking them to move all the threads that contain video info that are currently on the first pages of the beginner and general boards over to here. Please :D Including my own on the beginner site. This is a nice board - and really needed.

There is one commment I want to make. If someone on the general board asks me how to do a fouette or another step, I will send them a link to places like American or Penn ballet sites that have those video clips available for educational purposes, as well as a link to other sources including my own. I'll also send others. That is exceptable. I will not start a new thread on that of course.

Myself I <b>don't</b> generally pick out one website over another - because I collect links from all around the globe, and I try to include as many dance catagories in my listing as well. The way I generally post is to notify of any NEW DANCE WEBSITES WITH DANCE CLIP LINKS - I also use the same thread over and over. I don't create a new thread each time, thereby overloading the site, and pissing people off.

This is a good forum, yet, we still need to use it wisely and not overkill with the same clips from the same source. Everyone needs a chance to be heard and seen. Look at something new today - look into tap and hip hop, or explore belly dancing and stomp. Hey don't just stop with jazz and lyrical. Broaden your dancing horizons. :D Chow and all jazz TEAM MOM

So, how do you like the forum now? Our lovely mods moved everything today..... Makes it look lived in, homey in a way. :D

KIcks feet back and watches the showstopper stream... LIVE :D Cup of coffee in one hand, links pages marked, and a herseys candy bar for breakfast. I'm all set - bring on the dance.
