Before starting with the Body School of ballroom, I was told I would never dance again.  I had no cushioning left in my feet, my knees, ankles, and hips were diagnosed with arthritis which required injections regularly to loosen up, and my arches had collapsed. 

The Body School not only fixed all of that, it improved everything.  There are alternatives out there, and it comes from a very deep understanding of how the body works, and I'm sorry to say, there's only one school of thought in the ballroom world that incorporates that knowledge into the dancing.  I've gone on to teach this methods to two doctors who both believed their knees and hips were beyond repair.  Three months later, going against everything Western medicine proclaimed to them, they were completely fixed.  Not to mention, they were both completely baffled because their knowledge of science and medicine could not explain how they themselves were cured.

Having discussed this on another thread, I often get told that I am not in time with the music and yet I am sure I am listening to the music and try and dance to the nuances particularity for the Australian style of dance NV which uses phrased music. I don't have that problem when dancing International STD. except apparently in VW where I can pick up speed on the change step. recently when we did get out of time whos problem is it to get back into time? it was pointed out to me and I tried to follow better his timing.

Men and women hear the music differently, and if you have an added layer of counting to the music, and then stepping to the count, that difference get exaggerated to the point that one of you will look like you are not on time.  Timing, direction, power and steps: if you leave that to the man, if ever you're off time, it will be the man's fault.   Grin

Is it possible for you to travel out of the country and take some lessons with a real master teacher, and not just the self-proclaimed ones?  By that, I mean those that were in the world finals and created others, almost from from scratch, that are now in the world finals?

Sounds like the comment of dancing too high is a symptom, not the issue itself.  If you try to lower, like you said, it would be disastrous. 

Having a master teacher, or someone trained to find the cause of the issue, really helps in cases like this.

I love those silent Ah Moments. I am trying to use my feet better. I think sometimes I skim them too much rather that using my body weight to keep them better connected with the floor. It is not using the full count. I was told recently to lower with value Cheesy. I could drop to quickly rather than squeezing the juice from the orange Tongue

I am currently working on my core.  I was trying to get on a study regarding regrowing cartridge in knees but I have been informed that my knees have deteriorated that I am not a good candidate.

This is most disappointing news from one perspective.

I am able to dance which surprises them but as the condition of the knees are so bad, I have taken many tablets, potions and lotions and I have increased my walking speed considerably to maintain fitness and stamina, so much for needing cartilage Cheesy

But was is happening is that my legs are bowing..I have always had bow legs but because the function is changing it is changing the structure of my other joints, so back to the orthopedic person to see what they have to say,hopefully it may be just more exercises. I wont give up dancing but I may have to give up competing if the results are going backwards due to the quality of my dancing (if that is the reason ie being the use of my knees). I can dance without pain

I have come across several in Europe that have provided great feedback and when we go to Holland we catch up with them all the time. I like to get input from those that keep in touch with what is going on in the dancing world. things are changing (not always for the better) but some things are and if you don't travel across your own country or international how do you impart, we all never stop learning and yet I know coaches they have not taken a lesson or been to a lecture for years.

Great dancing is an inside job!

There are several reasons to having a coach or coaching lessons.

1) A third eye
2) It is impossible to see what is going on within the body unless you have a trained eye.
3) Video's and mirror only gives part of a truth and without a trained eye you can only see big mistakes
4) A trained eye can see what causes the issue
5) A well trained coach understands how to correct the issue
6) A well trained coach can help the pro in a pro/am situation how to feel when the issue reappears
7) A well trained coach can help the pro deal with the issue and even correct it (from the feel)

There are many other reasons.... my mind just can't think of any more this very moment.


I agree with that all.Cheesy
