I started learning to dance to overcome horrific shyness and boost my confidence especially around women.  It most definitely helped, I stuck with it simply because it's so danged much fun.   Grin

I think it's OK to refuse a dance sometimes. Sometimes I get asked by the ladies, I accept most of the time, except for certain dances like Quickstep or Viennese Waltz (both of which I am horribly incompetent at), Salsa (which I lost interest in altogether) or Meringue (just cannot warm up to it at all).

Hmm, for some reason this thread popped up in my "responses" list, and it's perfectly timely, because I was just thinking about this the other day. 

I am now a firm believer that no routine, whatsoever, is necessary, and any compromise thereof is cheating.  Maybe for a competition you would like a more rehearsed set of figures so that you display your best at all times, but apart from that, lead and follow should be just that.  None of these "connectors" and "queues" and whatnot. 

Right on!  I have no problem with learning my partner's dance figures and even routine - but only by dancing it, not by rote.  I tried to explain that to my pro - the effect of learning is to create two partners, the one in my arms and the one in my head and they never really agree with the important stuff.  that being the physical expression of emotion - the whole point of dancing.

Learnts something new today when arranging numbers for competitors you cannot start below 10 for WDSF events it is a rule.... Tongue why I don't know perhaps it is for the numbering system.

I think the 'below 10' rule has always been there.  I suspect its because it might be seen as visual bias if one couple had '1' on their back! 


Possible. we have those numbers and I usually given then to the Juvenile couples Cheesy

Better give the 1 to the weakest couple Wink

This all seems to get more confusing.

One thing - WDC has a new website but I don't think they tested it on a laptop - the banner is so wide you can't access some of the dropdowns!  For example, I can't look at the professional ballroom rankings without searching for it on google.  They should shoot their web-designer....
