I'm not a marrying kind anymore.
How about a valet?  Cheesy
You know, I don't like where this is going. This is the kind of thing that perpetuates the idea that single people looking for dance partners look for something else, too.
I think that's silly.  Do you know how many women (as far as I am aware, it almost always that way round) have paid for successful eastern-European males to come to NA to be their partners?  Its very common and its a business deal that gets the man a visa while getting the female one a prime dance partner.  There are also umpteen cases of girls here where the parents pay the amateur partner a stipend plus all the teaching, clothes and entry costs.   By the way, the cases I know of are very carefully chaperoned and, if you know dancers, the serious ones will not jeopardize their partnership with possible complications resulting from personal interactions.

Hi there stranger!  What a European tour that was.  How did you both manage to get so much time off?

we are entitled to 20 days per year annual leave in Australia. and I don't go on leave for 18 months so we can then have up to six weeks. I now pick comps that are on Saturdays so I dont have to take time off of work. I also work through my lunch hours most weeks and my boss then does not mind if I leave early on a Friday to travel. Cheesy 

If I run out then it is leave without pay, but I have not had to do that yet.
You must have a great new boss too then.  How do you pick them Smiley

Well, at this point, I am not sure my prospective partnership will happen. We did a few heats at a local showcase in December, that went OK, but it's pretty much like dancing at a social, except they limit how many couples there is on the floor. We practiced  together a few times after I went to Heritage in March, that went OK, too, and then he got involved with local theater, and did two productions pretty much back to back, which left him no time to do anything else. Now we have a local pro-am event coming up in a few weeks, and both of us will be busy getting ready for that. Which leaves something like a month to practice for the am-am event in September (and I have no idea when the entries deadline is, but I think it's some time in August).

Gosh he is trying to  do many things....Very difficult...and as with the rest of the world. finding a man who will dance with commitment is very hard.
Best shot is to marry him eh? Grin

Having  seen first hand the  two side recently WDC  is struggling. the WDSF comps were far better attended, if I went to the UK perhaps it may be different. The styling is becoming completely different between the two and in Australia dancing is very much along te lines of WDC hence we having better success in WDC comps. In WDSF they did not look at us at all.  Undecided

We have consulted both our major coaches and have introduced some moved that should not comprise either camps  but it does become harder to make the switch between the two. I feel there are things that WDSF must pull back and quickstep is one, it is just scatter chasses and hops and run.  Nothing artistic about it at all. You may have seen some of my videos. I wont go down that path.

The amount of Eastern block dancers is huge! and mostly WDSF

I know this one slipped by everyone with me being away, but I had a great Birthday flying business class 33,000 feet in the air Cheesy something I could easily get use to. War zones did cross my mind going to Europe but coming home it did not. Just as well...what a tragedy.  Embarrassed
