Hi! Newcomer to PDO as stated to your left!  Wink  Just wondering how everyone came up with their username.  Markovka is what my coach calls me!  He's like a big brother to me and he calls his little sister Markovka, so he calls me Markovka.  lol!

Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels.

flashdance is the film that influenced me to start dancing...

There's an old lady in the film (Hanna Long) who encourages Alex to do the thing she loves (Dancing) .... which encouraged me to do the same... without the leg warmers of course Wink

I had another name at one time which represented my favorite dance.  My name here represents my "little dream" of competing among the elite amateurs one day.

Mine doesn't have any special story...it's just a song title that I thought might make a good username, I use it all over the place.  It's also one of my favourite songs; the first time that I used it as a username, it was a good description of where I was at in life

I use my cat's names.  My avatar on DF (the orange and white cat on DF) iis Taffy, Kitty's brother.  Rugby was their stepsister and my email (Jade) is their sister.  Jasmine, their other sister, is the name I use on other non-dance sites.

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.

Great question MK Smiley

Lets see. Hmmm.  Well elise - that sort of sprang to mind partially because its my name and partially because,,,,, because,,,,, well maybe wholly becaues its my name.  Yes thats it!!

And -dance - thats partially because thats what I do and why I'm on here.  OK its wholly too. 

Now the only question is why is it elisedance and not danceelise.  Well.  The former sounds like a new craze - the elisedance which is a problem.  Howeve,r the latter would put two 'e's together and that would be confusing since I already have that.  And it sounds like an instruction - 'go, danceelise!'.  So after much consternation I went with elisedance.

To be honest, it was the first thing that came into my head...

So was I. It's an awesome name origin.

Mine started a few years ago when I signed onto a trivia site. I'd been taking a lot of quizzes about Tamora Pierce's 'Lioness quartet' books and so I made my username there 'Lioness'. It's stuck, and I use it on almost everything.
