Yeah I car-seat dance too but it's usually because I have to go to the bathroom and I'm still a long way from home.  Grin

Now why is it that 'couch dancing' sounds vaguely decadent? Roll Eyes
Then car-seat dance.  Lets see, what would the natives of northen sweden do?
Well it's better than couch-potato dancing.  It's when we sit on the couch with a laptop and watch Youtube!  Smiley

Car-seat dancing, despite Rugby's definition, is what I do when I'm stuck in traffic and I listen to dance music in the car and go through my routines in my head.   Cheesy

I think the main problem with the way we see ourselves affects our performance at competitions. We've been doing really well in the SA comps, purely because we've been in lots, and we have a really good track record. In our division, we are one of the top couples, and so we go onto the floor confident of our ability. We don't worry about what our fellow competitors will think of us, or whether they will be better. If they were going to completely show us up, they would have been doing it consistently, rather than every now and than (when we have a bad day/they have a good day).

When we went interstate, it was a whole different kettle of fish. We saw ourselves as the underdogs; everyone else had an attitude that they were already registered, just not competing in that particular divvision. They were confident in the knowledge that they looked good, they danced well, and it was just another competition. We saw ourselves as stepping out on a limb to go in a competition that was filled with advanced dancers. We viewed ourselves as worse dancers than them.

The key is to balance confidence with arrogance. Sure, in some comps we are one of the better couples there. It's been tried and tested at quite a few comps. Then, in other comps, we are not by far the most skilled, but we can still go out there and dance our best.
