One of my male coaches (a former US open pro finalist) complimented me when I'm dancing well "now the way you do pivots look a little bit like Katusha..." He's a good friend with Katusha as well...first I thought he was joking, then he made such comment several times; Another time he complimented me to DP "she has a beautiful shape"... he made my day !!!
Love the avatar SD!  Is that from blackpool?

Oh, come on, can’t you see the background tables are typical setting of NDCA comps;)Smiley, that’s from 2 weeks ago at Boston, Dancing A La Carte. Thanks ee.

We can’t go Blackpool this year, US Immigration denied DP’s travel documents…

DP from Russia, US Immigration denied his travel parole means he will not be admitted to USA if travels aboard. So not good for traveling oversea if can't come back to USA.

We registered before 3/31 blackpool deadline, hoping he got approved for travel parole. Travel Parole got denied one month before Blackpool:(

yes we have those sort of restrictions here also, especially when they are very new to the country and what status of visa they are. they are just wary of those trying to become a Citizen the sort cut way. not that I am saying he is doing so, but they just treat everyone with the same brush!

We look forward to seeing you next year.

My biggest compliment was from my dance father. I actually got it a few times. When I put all the compliments together then I actually danced a total of 12 bars where I looked "normal". Tongue I was jumping around for 15 minutes the first time he said "that looked normal" and that was 3 bars of music. Cool

lmao... i once received a "you look...normal" compliment from my own coach and it was just music to my ears! Cheesy  that was after so many comments like "your dancing is... distorrrted". all i could think of, after so much work to undo all the resistance to "normality" in my body, was "am finally making progress". Cool Grin

but best compliment from instructor was the last time i danced with him, last summer: "i feel no limitation". what a hallmark of progress, considering that i started out with so much limitation.

and around the same time, i was taken for a professional a couple times when out in the social WCS community. i don't know much about WCS, so i figured it was just all the BR training coming thru. felt good, nonetheless.

I got a compliment about a week ago from a pro competitor.performer.teacher on being creative in my dancing, and coming from someone of one Judy Zwick's caliber, that meant a lot to me.  Grin

Some weeks back, after doing a Hustle with this one woman, she asked me where I learned to do Hustle, and when I told her it was the one dance I'm completely self-taught on, her jaw fell out of its socket, and she said, "Wow, you're better than some people who've HAD lessons!".   Grin

It's nice to have someone appreciate your efforts, especially when it is stuff you have created yourself.

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.

My instructor's wife, who used to be his professional partner, walked through my lesson the other day, and bothered to stop on the way by and make some changes in what I was doing. This is the first time she has ever taken me seriously. I was immensely flattered, once I got over the shock.

Reminds me of when, many years ago, a Nobel laureate stopped by my poster to tell me how wrong it was.  At the time I was rather depressed - but the laureate's senior trainee came immediately after - and congratulated me as mine was the only poster he both stopped at and critiqued...
[the postscript of the story is that the years have shown that I was actually right...]

During yesterday's lesson, the studio was having a summer dance camp for little girls in one room of the studio. A Dance Camp Mom waiting for her daughter in the waiting area out front was able to watch my lesson -- and did. At one point, she had to stop us and say something about how we looked, and how much it reminded her of her days as an ice dancer.

Holy cow. If an ICE DANCER thought I looked good, that works for me!
