A friend of mine inspired me to look at Victor Sylvester's book "Modern Ballroom Dancing" and I found this in the book that I think should be mentioned here.

I quote.... "Once upon the floor, remember that other couples are also there. Avoid a collision, if possible, by taking shorter steps or altering your line of dance. If a collision does occur always apologize to the other couple, even if it was not your fault"

Yes, this is written under Ballroom Etiquette of his book.

I'm near St. Louis. I'd like to see it. It's a dance a lot of my students have requested, just because of the "it's different and rare here" appeal.

I do guest coaching and workshops in it.  If you would like we can arrange for me to come out and run something. Feel free to end me a private message and I'll give me you my email address

It is possible to see the difference between the Physical Styles (Traditional and Round) compared to the Energy Styles (Body and Square).

Here is Riccardo and Yulia using the Physical Style

Here is Riccardo and Yulia the year after using the Energy Style

To the trained eye the difference is huge....

It seems like heel turns are a perfect example of how poorly the men are taught. The woman's job today in ballroom dancing has evolved 100% to making the guy look somewhat competent.  Cry

And they still do a poor job of it. Sad women are not taught to be women and men are not taught to be men. Even more sad that the teachers don't even understand what the difference is....

One of the top PM&R doctors in the country told me that it's impossible to ride a bicycle long term without damaging your nerves at the elbow.

Now that is just insane. I have never heard anything so ridicules before. There are countries in Europe where most of the population are on bikes daily. I have never heard or seen any issues with elbows being damaged by biking from any of those countries. That is just a load of nonsenses.
 
So yeah, the Body School needs to come out and permeate society, because it's in desperate need of it. Last I checked, arthritis wasn't curable, but I managed that feat just fine, having three different sports medicine doctors confirm the diagnosis in two countries.

Sounds like you need to be the one that promotes the Body School to the medical world. .....And by the way my family doctor always said the arthritis is indeed curable. He was however himself a dancer and saw the benefits of good dancing.

My mother and my teacher always told me to never follow a man as it would only lead to trouble. I have a feeling they were both right. My teacher told me to respond to a man however never follow him. The better you get the faster you should lower and the slower it will look and feel.

Here is an example from the 80s - as I remember it.

It may look a bit like walking but it sure doesn't feel like it when you do it.  Rather a gracious dance in which you do not go into 'position'.
