Hi
« on: February 08, 2010, 12:05:23 AM »

Just to say hello everyone  Smiley

I'm T. Twenty six year old guy living in Auckland New Zealand.  I started Ballroom and New Vogue classes a few months back.

As far as Ballroom goes I'm quite enjoying the Waltz. All the rise-and-fall and the swaying. Brilliant. Reminds me of my favourite sport in a way (Cricket), which probably sounds rather weird.

With New Vogue I've so far only learned the steps for a few of the dances.  I should probably try copying some of the arm stylings from youtube videos though. It's the arm stylings that make NV dances look good.

Anyways, that's me. Good to be here.

Cheers,

T.

Recommendation on another forum.  I was told there are Australians here who might be able to help with my New Vogue questions.  Smiley

Hello NZ.  Welcome to the boards.  We have alot of people here from your side of the world.

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

I think thats because some of the aussies did not post a marker because they are in the same place...

Heh, sorry I'm responsible for the personification of the antipodean markers.

You can be anything you want. There are default icons - a pin, a volcano, a passport control officer, a martini glass...  or you could use a picture of your own. 

Being a person kinda makes sense - 4 women and 2 men in Oz and 1 nz_guy across the ditch.
