indeed. I feel the Arunas and Katusha will do the same thing this year. let someone else have it and concentrate on their teaching.

Well that did not eventuate, they only dance so few comps now I suppose there is no need to retire just yet.
Its hard to give up glory.  Of course, its even harder to keep it up!

the Eastern Block Countries as well as the Asian countries are huge into dancing even now with Holding a Asia Blackpool why they would do that I don't know. but without these countries  Dancing would be in serious trouble and one thing they need to think about is the cost.

they are pricing themselves out of the market.

The other problem is injury alot of the pros develop back issues from lugging around partners that are not moving. Some of the ladies our teacher has to dance with are huge! Tongue  Not a pleasant thought

This weekend was very illuminating from the perspective of how much difference music makes for social dancers and their gatherings. Went to one social on Saturday and it was a thin crowd, part of the problem I think lay in the music selection, SAME EXACT PLAYLIST they were using 10 years ago. Seen this happen with another dance and because of the same reason (verified this with several other dancers who used to go) that the music was boring, generic cookie cutter music. Eventually, nobody went anymore.

I wound up DJ-ing again last Sunday, by and large it went over really well and did my darndest to avoid things that were played to death. One thing that didn't fly was a fast swing bordering on Quickstep tune, the beat didn't come through quite clear enough (room acoustics played a part in it, live room with a lot of hard surfaces), lesson learned. Other thing was a few too many fast Waltzes (other lesson learned), outside of that, the dancers liked the idea of some very different music than what had been previously served up, doing it again in a couple weeks and doing a Cha Cha lesson too. A work in progress, and even in the midst of it (thanks to my laptop), I got to join in the party and test out some of the songs myself. Gotta say, some Steely Dan tunes make some pretty nice West Coast Swing.
Didn't we have a DJ or dance music topic once?  Maybe should resuscitate!

I think providers get lazy, they should have several different play lists and bring them out at different times, nothing worse that getting up and sure enough you hear the same waltz or tango etc. Especially if it is organ-grinder music  Roll Eyes

LMAO!!! Organ-grinder music!   Grin   Cheesy   Tongue   You're right, laziness and complacency run rampant in some circles, sad to say.

There is a bit of argy bargy going on at the moment regarding being part of the Olympics, some in the Freedom to dance movement have been quite nasty to those that want to see the whole picture. Some of the words used are well those that are double agents used to be killed in the II world war!. Spare me how is this helpful to dance and having major groups take us seriously.... Huh

Now there are two petitions one if you want to be part of the Olympics and another that says the Strip WDSF of their IF Olympic Status. Someone needs to get them in a room and sort this mess out before they kill off dancing altogether
