  1. Good for you! And for them, and for them, as dancers! "We must become entrepreneurs!" Yes! I share your insight and vision. It's a pity that those who ran the school in which I taught, failed to recognise the importance of the very idea that it's important to teach children how to be self employed, financing, producing, marketing, and selling their own art work. It might have been great also to encourage gardeners to do the same or cooks, performers and musicians to do the same. I retired and the great idea retired with me. Thank God for people like you!
