This is a tough crowd.
I have to say I'm having trouble following the conversation. Seems to me that social and competitive dancing are all mixed in here. tome, they're very different things and can sometimes even be dangerous to have on the floor together. Especially at socials with a mix of ability levels, competitive dance, especially routines, might not always be the rest idea.
I know of some competitive studios that run rounds, every so often. To me, if there's an option to run rounds, that's a much better place for competitive dance.
