Learnts something new today when arranging numbers for competitors you cannot start below 10 for WDSF events it is a rule.... Tongue why I don't know perhaps it is for the numbering system.

I think the 'below 10' rule has always been there.  I suspect its because it might be seen as visual bias if one couple had '1' on their back!

I know they both blame each other for not being tolerate, well their needs to be mediation. When ones sees themselves as an art and the other as an artistic sport never the twain shall meet. Very frustrating as we say dancers just want to dance.

I recently watch online the event from Wuhan  and WDSF was using the new 2.1 scoring systems four groups of three judges judging different things, technique, partnering skills, musicality and the other-one escapes me. They are also throwing the highest score and keeping the middle so they are trying to be fairer against any bias....I have not heard that from WDC yet.

You can rent the video for 2.95 for 72 hours bargain from vimeo.

we have another comp on the week-end but have come down with a virus so not 100% at the moment. so we will see how things go. V is seeing a orthopedic surgeon tomorow about his shoulder not that he wants surgery but he still has lots of pain a year since it has started so will be interesting to see what they have to say.

Sad Much Sad

How very disappointing - well it needs to be aired and the Freedom to Dance folks need to get active again.  The WDC needs to know that we can all change our minds....

I have a friend who is a dance teacher.  She never had her couples dance in contact so that nobody will feel uncomfortable by touching in what she considered an inappropriate way.  She was taught that the man and woman should not have their bodies touch at all, especially below the waist.  The problem is that for some it will work but I noticed that the men, in their attempts to lead the lady, would use their right arm like a vice grip which resulted in the lady being pulled in to the man.  They kept no contact below but her boobs were basically crushed into him.  On the other hand I would notice the ladies lean in and do a death grip on the man to try and feel where he was going.  Again this would result in the ladies chest against the man.  So, in the attempt to not have any inappropriate contact they ended up with really inappropriate contact but also not being able to dance properly.  I would say at least 3/4 of the couples ended up like this.  She has now changed her mind and realized that it would be better to teach body contact.  In the last month she says her students are happier, can dance much easier and have found that the body contact is an advantage.
