That's really smart that you have come to that realization and are looking at it objectively.  If you've been doing it for years and your placings and rankings are not much higher than where they were, you should definitely ask why that is.  Most coaches are quick to say, "oh that's because you don't practice 24/7", but that's garbage. 

I know people who became who became national champions hitting the floor less than 5 hours a week.  It's not the quantity of how much practice you do on the floor, it's the quality of the information you're actually practicing with. 

I know a lot of folks who have danced 15-20yrs and have only gone up in their rankings one or two placings, if that, and are still stuck in bronze or silver. It boggles my mind why they don't ask how a 12-year old can go from nothing, to crawling, to walking, to running, to dancing and then winning a junior event, and they have school and homework: they don't practice 24/7.

yes there are other ways but you have to be able to find people that can guide you through the other way. I am concentrating on myself and my partner can worry about himself.  I know that sounds selfish but I need to be able to do things on my own and not need him at all.

I agree you cant keep doing the same things if you expect better results, so we will talk with coaches and articulate our concerns.

More seriously, I hit the 6-year itch too in dance, and but I used it to regroup and try another approach.  In my case it was the Body School.

Doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result... you know what they say.

Try doing something different.  There are other options in ballroom.  Many schools of thought.
Yup, my other option was... to pick up my violin Cheesy
