Wrap up: 

Was very pleased with these workshops, especially the second round.  Am trying recently to provide actual musical/choreographic experiences in workshops and classes, rather than just an informational/intellectual experience.  I think these workshops achieved this.  Having participants solo multiple times throughout the workshop made them more able to have fun at the very end.
