My amateur ex-partner still lives in Europe, so it would be a little difficult to see him or dance with him on a regular basis. We did meet for the first time since 1988 just this last year (2009). It was fun to see him and talk about old times. We have not danced together since I turned professional.
I do see my professional ex-partner from time to time as we are both still in the business. We haven't danced together for a very long time.
At this time I think, I would rather just have the memory of how great it was. I am sure it would not feel as great as it did at one time, if we were to take a swing today. Some things are best left in the past.
But is that really true? Since you both retired at the same time (I presume thats correct) neither of you adapted to a new regular partner. I think it would be fascinating (least for us
) to see if it would be like hte proverbial bike....
I think we need an experiment here ....
