The flavor of the month is what I call it.  When all is said and done it will be proper dancing that will last...

I pray to the Ballroom G-ds every day...

Yep ... Good dancing is good dancing and that's what the Americans forget to / or are just not all educated enough to pay attention to... Hmmm...

I honestly wonder what would happen if Peter Eggleton or Benny Tolmeyer were to compete today, if they would even place in a U.S. competition. 

Now THAT is a thought... Battle of the Millennium Champions... what a mental image! Shocked

well we normally don't have that many either but we seem to be getting more lately, but I still rather dance myself that watch them, and it helps me to get to my 12,000 steps a day Grin

Danced today so got my 12,000 steps in and then some!  Pulling out the old books (I mean that literally - Just One Idea & Phyllis Haylor's) this week, since being on here has gotten me into the mood to reread them.  I also have the Autobiography of Vernon & Irene Castle and somewhere packed away Arthur Murray's... I need to go back in time a bit... Maybe I should paraphrase it as "The Future... Back to the Past"?

yes I believe there is a skill to doing so I watched DSI freedom to Dance and it was not nice to watch. I don't know how they filmed it but was very amateurish and all the way through they kept trying to sell their product. I would hope other events have more cameras and angles.

Absolutely agree with the quality (or lack thereof) of the filming for Freedom To Dance.  I've seen very good and very bad and everywhere in between.  I am hoping they will do better going forward.

When I filmed certain couples I used to pretty much ,emorize their routines so I could anticipate where they were going on the floor.  For shows I used to watch rehearsals to get a feel of what would happen so there were no big suprises...

Not many others bother.  Some couples would ask me to get a close up of a piece of footwork or a picture piece... I'd do it as they wished.  I guess they were happy with what I did.  And, I was especially good for formation teams.  It was hard work and long hours but a lot of fun too.

We went to a comp recently and a couple who are in another grade to us said "You should win that you were clearly the best on the floor" I said thank you but that wont happen and she then said well if you don't I will stand up and "Boo"! I said on no don't do that! We often seem to be the public favourites but deliberately not the judges Tongue

Those compliments hep to keep your spirits up the results certainly don't and the level of the people that get back to a final. I look and think I must be worse than  that.

I had one of my Pro/Am pro partners who I hadn't seen in a couple of years... After I'd been training in London say as I came off the floor... "Gee.. I didn't know you could dance like that!"

He did not mean it in a derogatory way at all.  He was truly pleased and surprised that it had taken me such a short time to come such a long way. He was always one of my all time favorites!  Still is!! :-D

If you can get to the root of the problem then you can figure out how to work a fix.  Sometimes it's so simple it's silly ... "I want to practice Latin first and he wants to do ballroom..." blah...blah...blah... Kids!!  LOL!!
