We have to do our routines on our own, beside each other and also together but with no arms.  Amazing how much you learn and how often you both move differently, depend on each other and so forth.

Okay, here is an example of what I don't like.

Dancing being sacrificed on the altar of going overboard for athletic appeal.

Actually I think you are right - I'm beginning to forget - but I did do all the motions on my own centre - my partner only provided where they should be done and initiated the speed.  How soon we forget.

Not sure why I'm running this place any more Undecided

It has to come back to the centre. people have to remember that you should only do moves that you can hold on your own.


Hold on your own?  I would have thought that would be better put as hold in the partnership?  There are many moves that can only be made if you are counterbalanced by your partner no?


That may be, but I am told to do all the routines on my own without the need of my partner. Doing one of those back bends wont work for me on my own.  I have been dancing with a different teacher and he is so light I  holding himself but not pushing or forcing me to go anywhere unlike when V & I dance we try too hard at times, but in saying that we are getting much better. I have improved my fitness a great walking at 6km an hour, I still cannot run or job, but I have made great inroads as 18 months ago my speed would have been 4km per hour.

I saw a competition where the lady was just going into a deep head shaping and it knocked her and her partner off balance.  They both took a header onto the floor.

 
sorry, but I had to laugh!  I guess noone seems to realize that the subtleties of dance - the reason they are so beautiful - are because they facilitate motion, they don't impede it.  Thats what really gives any movement type grace, its within the mechanics of the motion.  This fad has to go - maybe the bonked heads will kill it!

Hmm.  Sounds like we're talking about the psychology of competition, which may or may not have anything to do with dance.
Its an integral part of competitive ballroom dancing, whether you like it or not.
