maybe best to look at the silver lining and just dig in.  Who knows, maybe you will learn something... (even if its to not return next year!!)

but maybe we're both old fashioned and this will be the new normal eventually.

Still makes no sense...

We have just booked to go to an event in QLD and they have put a dance in there that is a lower level dance. recently they updated the new vouge guildines to limit the amount of dances that each grade needs to practice.

Now out of left field they have put in a dance that is considered a lower level dance.

Fine we should know how to do it but styling of these dances takes months to become second nature and spend all that time on it when the rest of the year you will get the others.

I tried to protest but they say that it falls in the guidelines and that it is not restricted to the 8 dances expected of a A grade dancer. I feel that we should all protest and do it. in closed hold like the lower level dances it is an ugly dance. Agreed it is good to teach foot work, but the old saying putting lipstick on a pig still makes it an pig.

Feeling annoyed

some f the head movements in Tango are a bit off. the rapid lady head change without any instigation from her partner. find that a bit silly. But always look with interest the changes that are developing and good thing there is other wise it is stagnant and will die.
Thats really a very masculine action then. I'm a devout feminist in spirit - but that does not deny masculinity and femininty, far from it, it worships the strengths in both.  Standard ballroom is surely one of the best expressions of this aspect of our relationships - to change it is to make it something I don't think it should be.  If its all lead follow by both partners (which an uninstigated female head jerk is) then the magic has gone for me.

yes I find it quite disturbing and not easy to watch and I often find the winning couples were calm and very easy to watch.

There have been a few moves and changes in this event. some of Australian amateurs became pro had and reasonable success. One Australia couple got 2nd in rising Star. Another that just turned pro got in the last 24 I think.

then with Monica Nigro changing partners her old partner with Natasha Karaby  got fourth, she must be happy her and her brother never could get that high.


Otherwise there wasn't much of note - our Canadian couples did about as expected.  Andra and Maurizio came third in pro-latin while Anton and Anna did a little worse in pro standard than usual, not making the quarters.  Perhaps the biggest surprise was the poor result for our number two latin pros, Kamil and Anna who were barely half way up the fourth round.  This was very disappointing - I wonder if one of them is injured. 

Oh had not looked at the latin results :-/

have not had a cat for over a year now. still miss her but with all our travel dont think it is fair. we still have an old dog she will be 15 this year and for a big dog that is quite remarkable. she is having trouble with her back legs and sight but in all she is still in good condition. sleeping alot more these days though.
our other cat is definitely on its last legs too.  He's over 20, you may recall his sister died about a year ago from jaw cancer.  Still perky but has taken to howling at night - I wonder if he has visions or maybe he misses Nora too.  One thing I did was to give him an electric warming pad under his towel on the sofa - he's in heaven!
