serfing...urrrr, I mean, researching. Yes, legitimately working.
LOL!  Tell you what, I can employ you as a 'PDO poster' (unpaid volunteer position with lots of status) and then you can legitimately say that you are working... Grin

I guess it all depends where you put the divisions - or maybe where you put that tells which you are!

Hot - over 28C; cold less than -10....

yup, I'm not exactly a polar bear but I'm surely not hot... shucks...

That's a very courteous way of dealing with a Kling-on!  [Hey, I think we have a term!]  Certainly beats stamping on their foot anyway.  And probably most effective because some cases of Klingon are due to the woman feeling insecure - which could be a reflection in part of your dance approach.  Its particularly interesting that BP's Klingons are on the left and yours on the right - might be worth looking at both of your respective arms (and total frame) to see if there is something that could be improved to make her more secure. 

But slowing things down and relaxing is surely the way to go - could turn a Klingon into a Karesson!

I think that it is similar to everything in life  - a double edge sword - it would be a great addition if you know what you are doing, but you might kill yourself (quite literary in this scenario) if you don't know how to wield it.

I personally find it quite useful, but then I normally watch the blackpool lectures series - you can hardly go wrong with that. I also watch my own video for improvement, others dances for inspirations and development of my taste, and sometimes just watch competitions and imagine that I am on the floor.

But if they don't know the difference and they feel they are improving who's to say they are wrong?  They may not be learning how do dance in the current tradition, but they are learning their own way and perhaps it works for them - perhaps it even works better.

There's more than one way to skin a cat, as they say...
While I like your statement, I would also like to note that certainly there are people in the position for saying them being wrong - their dance partner, or whoever is dancing with them. I don't mean it as "why don't you lead? Why don't you follow?" type of arguments. But if that self learning person is hurting me, I am fairly certain that I could, and probably should tell him or her that you are wrong.

I cringe inside when ever I see people dancing with street shoes - and yes, that including hip hoppers...

I am a cold weather person - because I am way too hot~ (ok, I just couldn't make that pun).

My comfort temperature is somewhere around 10~20.

Being a bit late to the party - life certainly looks different with a work over there. I solute all those people dancing when working OMG.

It sounds like BP's experience on death grip is on guy's left hand - where my more memorable ones are on my right arm. I personally don't really have any good solution beside praying the music to finish faster...

My current way to deal with most/many nuisances is to relax. By that I mean if my partner isn't moving, I don't, too. If she is relaxing her arms onto my arms, I relax mine, too. If you are chatting, I...ok, I might talk a bit. But I really think that that is a bad idea - as in calling someone when driving kind of bad idea. if she couldn't make the full turns, I would make it up to match her. Life looks quite different when I am more "sitting back."

That's odd - they fixed one thing; now the past events are in reverse order (newest at the top) well done - that was fast Grin

Not sure why, but its seems to take forever for some professional results to be posted, at least by the WDC.  A current example is for the Asian tour the Taipei competition (on the 28th Feb) has not been reported and neither has the Tokyo Asian Open on the 23rd Feb.

On that note, the new WDC competition web page may seem logical to its designers but is far from it for the new user.  This is what you see at first - you have to figure out that to see previous comps and results you have to check the tiny boxes on the upper right:
If you click on the 'results' box the page goes blank (because the default is future comps and, nope, they don't have results for them yet!

But if you check both boxes you then see the OLDEST comps come up at the top of the pageand you have to scroll through to find the recent news.  

No prizes guys....

I think most visitors people come to the site for two things: upcoming comps and results of recent comps.  To my mind the page should be designed with those two as the most easily accessed info.

just a thought.
