Well, have you noticed how lots of us around here on D-F don't particularly get along...and this is just a forum. I.don't.disagree. At all. I never have. (I could pick on the idea of those particular things being considered basic things, or even fundamentals...but i don't have that kind of energy.) Nor do I disagree with: I don't think it's really of any value to the larger AT or dance world, and I don't actually think it can be done, but given that they are hell-bent on doing it, then...fine. None of this is my concern. It's not what I brought up, and not what I'm arguing. What I am arguing is: I don't believe the examiners are qualified to be examining AT. Period. I'd love to be proven wrong, and if I am I will be the first to admit it and apologize. But I do not fundamentally believe that those in the position of examining others are competent and qualified to do so.
