I have no problem being on the floor on my own.....as longas I know my stuff!.. and I think that is the Key. if you know your steps sequence or routine you always dance with confidence.

You cant help it if people dont turn up on the day, and as an organizer of events it is very disappointing. bu as they say the show must go on.... and it gives judeges a chance to see you without the distractions of others. there is always a positive.

our partnership continues to grow. We have our issues from time to time but I think it is mostly the communication and the language we use. We both are trying to articulate the same thing in a different way.

V's leads are getting much clearer and having lessons with Davide Tonizzo has improved his dancing 100% not that our coach has not been telling him the same thing, but it is being delivered in a different way.

We have our ups and downs for sure - the worst is when DP gets a Bright Idea.  Don't get me wrong, he's actually very good at analzying dance moves but every now and then he will come up with a new SOlution for, say foxtrot timing and we'll spend half an hour before its clear the New solution needs some more solutes... Tongue 

Funny, our dance results have been declining steadily but our dancing feels like its getting better and better.  How far can this go on?

That just means that you're staring down a different path.  It'll take a while for your results to come back to "normal", but you'll soon know if it's a better path if you start exceeding your previous results.

well, its a better path because I enjoy dancing more.  DP has struggled against it but he has had to admit that splitting roles works betterthan the alternative - though every now and then he has a 'throwback' moment Smiley

Yes, "better" is subjective because there are so many factors to weigh in. 

In my case, it got easier, more enjoyable, less stress, less anxiety, less fatigue, etc.  It took me a full year to slightly exceed my previous placings.  I'm on a competitive hiatus but still taking lots of lessons, so all's good.

We have our ups and downs.  Right now definitely on an up swing with a new coach - who brought a championship woman with him tonight.  Shot in the arm for both of us, so much to incorporate.  Oh, and the next comp is this weekend (more on that anon..)

what a different a few weeks make.....all good for us. although we have issues with the way we want to train. I sometimes like to go over things before we start. particiually if we had a lesson the night before and the coach has mentioned things that we need to work on.  My partner just likes to get on with it. so we have healthy discussions about our approach to training.....we compromise by doing each others  style of training.

yes I agree. we have two lessons a week 1 for new vogue and 1 for modern....and then we practice before and after the lesson and on the other days for and half going over both styles.

when Davide is in town we have another technical lesson on modern...feel we gain more time to extend our shaping in our dancing Cheesy

I think it fizzled.  I think the problem is that he has a girlfriend who is pretty good but not a competition dancer and that is where his heart really is...  I just signed up for a gold memership on dance partner dot com
