I'd be curious to hear the differences you note between what you've heard all these years and what your new teacher teaches you.

What prompted me to start this topic was this article by Anthony Hurley.  I would love for coaches to hurl chairs at their couples and have them do all their routines competitively in social dances like Anthony had to contend with.

In my opinion, what Anthony is asking is near impossible when the basics of partnering skills are not even mentioned in most of today's coaching sessions.  Breaking out of one's set routine and reverting to basics is considered "not competitive" and no couple would risk it.  Furthermore, the precedent is set when couples with ZERO floor craft, and think of ballroom dancing is pinball on steroids, are marked as champions. The day they disqualify for collisions, we'll start seeing some serious floorcraft.  The other option is to have competitors truly respect each other.  HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!

My question to even Anthony would be, why on earth would a couple have to revert to basics when their routine is compromised?  Are their advanced figures that are unleadable or unfollowable?!

that I don't know. I think you work as a team you support each other, no one should be the dominant, when a man dances what ever he does the women would follow if she is totally giving, it is a very hard balance to describe Tongue

I am back!  Grin

Quick question: someone worked very closely with DSV and believes that the woman should be on her own balance without being reliant on the man?  I guess DSV and her sister are polar opposites then.  Shocked

Good to chat to you again QPO!  Best of luck in the comp!

Well you are back with a vengeance my friend Cheesy love to hear your point of view. I dont have a problem with the name and I believe that Dancing is both a sport and an art so I always say artistic sport.  There are things I don't like with the WDSF style  and I always say unless a women can stand on her own or a man without being reliant on the partner for balance it should not be done.

I do think that in time things will come back to a more central place from a balance perspective.

I currently am having lessons from someone who worked very closely with DSV. I am so loving the input from this person, we have our first major comp this week-end and will be interesting to see how we go and if people notice changes. Very exciting. Grin

Hello everyone sorry I am late to the discussion. My injuries are not caused by my dancing, it is genetics Grin  I agree dancing should not be the cause of the problems and in my case it is not  Cheesy
