There are more than 250000 registered amateur dancers in Tokyo alone. There are about 100000 registered amateur dancers in Yokohama which is just south of Tokyo. Of those about 1/2 does competitions in Japan and the rest are social dancers. They have a ranking system in Japan where only A class if allowed to compete outside of Japan. There is about 25 couples in A class. Of those 25 couples only about half would travel outside of Asia. The B and C class has about 200 couples in each. D and E class has about 500 couples in each class. F class has the rest. You will have to win your class 3 times before moving up and if you are last in your class 3 times you go down a class.

Germany also have a class system like in Japan. They have A, B, C and D class. Again only A class are allowed to compete outside of Germany. They also have about 25 couples in A class. There are about 50 couples in B and C class and about 100 in D class.

I know that China have implemented a similar class system in the last 5 years. I do however not know how many couples are in each class. I would expect it would be similar to Japan.

There are about 3 to 4 competitions in Japan ever week depending on the class and region. We never hear of them as they are for Japanese couples only.

I was taught there are 4 "SALES" and their sub-rules (ways the head moves) by several of the top teachers in England.

Each SELL is very different and their sub-rules can totally change the picture. The good thing is that once you understand the rules and their sub-rules it is very easy to feel if the "sell" is correct or not.

Like this...
Sell #1 has 5 sub-rules
Sell #2 has 6 sub-rules
Sell #3 has only 1
Sell #4 has 2 sub-rules

So all in all there are 14 ways the lady's head will move as response to her mobility.


The man will get "put" in the correct position when the lady does the correct "sales". As SG said the man follows the Lady....

I will try to remember to do so tomorrow. I owe two hustle videos and now one peabody video and I need to come through with those, or the online dance world will banish me to fiery shoe-funk hell. Of course, if you actually SEE what I'm calling peabody, you still might want to do that.

are you referring only to this step? as The head moves in other positions, which leads me to another discussion that I will make a new Thread Cheesy

Please do. An interesting technical aspect.

My partner and I dance very rudimentary peabody- just left and right- but tonight, a "this sounds like a QS, but it doesn't feel like one, and I'm too lazy to put anything into it" came on, so I suggested "Hey, let's troll the regulars by dancing a lap or two of peabody. It'll blow their minds."  So we got up and did so, and sure enough, "OMG, what WAS that, it looked so fun! Show me!" Like putting a box out for a cat.

So can you post a video of what you are dancing as Peabody?

I have found that my head actually stays still and it is my body that is moving underneath my head. I can't fix its position to any one place or it will feel awkward, stiff and off balance to the rest of me. I don't go anywhere not shaped by my gentleman. Yes, I do my steps and my jobs, but it is up to him for the rest.

I use Audacity as well, comes in real handy. Many times I edit for length, but occasionally have had to do tempo reduction.

Some tunes I've had to tweak for tempo:

Target - Joe Jackson (great Salsa tune but a bit tooo fast for some folks in its unaltered state, knocked it down about 4%, edited for length too)

A Love Bizarre - Sheila E (knocked tempo down about 3%, edit for length, OK Hustle tune)

Salt Pork WV - Louis Jordan (knocked tempo down about 3% or so, fun EC Swing)

With A Gun - Steely Dan (slowed down about 4% or so, makes a great Two Step)

Eagerly looking forward to doing my lesson (Hustle) and DJ-ing on Sunday, different playlist this time, have a GREAT partner assisting me with the lesson too!  Grin

I did my first DJing job the other week. everyone was impressed and enjoyed the evening Cheesy...so have a job after dancing Tongue

Congratulations! What were some of your songs?

I did a mix of standards new and old, including the Andrew Sisters rum and coca cola and beer barrel polka, chatanooga choo choo, Nat King Cole, Vera Lynn as well as Cara Emerald  and the new foxtrot one Moonshine but I cant find her name. I tried to find different songs that the usual providers give dancers, everyone was very happy Cheesy

What Vera Lynn song?
