I did the usual work as a team, support dancing regardless of who is putting on the comps etc. The upper level dancers support and help the lower, studios work together to promote ballroom to bring more people in and of course the getting sponsors and making the dancers feel like they are important regardless of level and listen to what they say.
I must admit that I see dancing as 75% art and 25% athletics. I want to see the grace and beauty of two bodies moving as one to the music. Not just any music but the music that is playing. In this I mean that every waltz should be different depending on the waltz being played and such with the other dances. The bodies are kind of an equalizer that reflects the music, or, as one hip hop studio in my subdivision says, sound in motion.
Thanks e, I had a quiet birthday. Well, I should say I had to go to the ODS AGM that day. It was a drag that it was on my birthday but I couldn't give everyone else the speech about not going then not go myself. Lead by example I guess.
