Injuries are the pits, I had similar to you with my knees, then V had a bursar on his shoulder and also had back spasms, we have had to taper off quite alot at the end of the year and sometimes you wonder if you keep going gut I use dancing towards my fitness. am currently doing alot of walking to make up for lack of movement. But we need to have goals and an interest and I will attempt to keep going as long as I can
In the last three years dancing has changed so much and if you have not had lessons in the last five you are really old school. Some instructors I know have not had a lesson or kept us since the 80's becoming cassette players in an iPod world. For the ladies position it has really changed. We went from the lady being just to the right of the man's mid-line to being right chest to right chest and now it has gone to being just past the man's right chest. The man is also farther back to create a bigger top and the arm lines have changed too. Not so sure I like the high right elbow on the man that some of the younger guys are starting to sport. It disrupts the ladies left arm and top line too much in my view. Hopefully it is just something that will not take and soon be gone.
yes I agree if they lower the arm to be more sure the ladies arm is so straight and does not look right!
