What's New at ALG?
Anne's getting ready to head to San Antonio! She got some wind in her sails from this comment from a University of Rochester student who'd used Build Your Own Body (BYOB) in her Anatomy class last year:
"Anne, I aced the medical school anatomy class, and I couldn't have done it without the previous exposure in your class. Hope you're well and please keep the anatomy class running so more students can see how interesting anatomy can be!"
Anne's packing up to ship Build Your Own Body (BYOB) to this year's National Dance Education Organization (NDEO) Conference in San Antonio. At last year's conference, she received the Outstanding Leadership Award from New York State Dance Education Association (NYSDEA).
