This article is from the Ballet and Modern Dance FAQ, by Tom Parsons firstname.lastname@example.org with numerous contributions by others.
Our group branched off from rec.arts.dance. Eliot Aronstern
founded alt.arts.ballet, in May, 1994, to provide an on-line locale for
discussion of any and all topics related to ballet and modern dance as a
performing art. The primary focus in rec.arts.dance is on discussion of
social and competitive partner dancing, although there remains some degree
of overlap between these two groups.
