Many top dancers skipped the syllabus but what they didn't realize is that they were really skipping the understanding and experience that comes along with having gone through the syallbus.  It can become do this because this is what I was told to do rather than do this because I understand what it is that you have to do.  Even worse they teach everyone the same when in reality not everyone learns the same, has the same problem or is built the same.

You are so right.  If I had a buck for every time I have told people what you think they are doing is not what they are doing I would we wealthy.  They say that it takes ten years to finally understand what you are doing.  Of course understanding is still one thing and to be able to physically do is still another.  Learning to how to do the steps is easy, learning how to dance the steps is hard but lunderstanding the steps is even harder,  It takes years to gather the pieces of the puzzle, years more to put them together to create a picture and many more again to understand the picture they make.

Just want to say "hi" to everyone! Took a while to be accepted here, but glad I'm finally in.
I'm currently focusing on standard(Ballroom, I still like to call it "standard") with my amateur partner.
I used to love Latin too, but when I gets old I feel like I don't enjoy watching myself dancing Latin anymore. Standard is still ok, so I decide to quit competing in Latin and just focusing on Standard.

After 10 years of dancing and learning, I finally found out that standard is so hard.
1. What you see is not what you think, is not what peoples do. Sometimes what you think is probably totally wrong.
2. It takes many years to understand the meaning of one simple sentence or even one word that our teachers said.
3. Even it's such a hard and expensive hobby, but I still love it.

I think if people know nothing then a little of anything can't be worse!  At least it may get them more interested...

V always says that in the land of the blind one eye is King and for new persons to dance this applies to some of those videos. but if they wish to learn more they will soon find out that this is not true.

I research the people that are offering the advice and I know that some wont. but in the end I don't think there is much than can be done about it.
