This came iup in the goals topic in context of unmarried couples: after retirning do they still dance together (if at all)?

 It depends on their goals---and the depth of their friendship. My guess is probably not.

I wonder.  I mean after working on dancing for many years there must be quite a hole when you suddenly stop.  Or maybe its such a relief to not have to deal with each other any more!  For non-life couples, ballroom must be one of the most intimate relationships you can have - mentally as well as physically - without actually being (love) partners...

I agree with others that it depends on your friendship and if you both still want to dance. Very hard to go from something to nothing.....and perhaps when you go by yourself you might find someone else who wants to dance socially...

I think you just have to give it a go together and by yourself and see what happens.

Yes I do, not that I have retired from dancesport, but after my partner and I broke up, we still go to the same social and dance socially.
We don't go together specifically just to dance with eachother, but we both attend the same social (and that's how we first met) and there is no reason to stop going or stop dancing together.

Good for you.  There are few things worse in the dance world than to be shunned by an old partner...
