I'd be rich.
I think we would all be rich in the pocket if we had not started dancing but it is more than the money. It is a life experience

Thats not exactly what I meant - I mean if I were starting from scratch I would be sure I was rich.

To H%^&* with the money after that Cheesy

First you have decide that the new reality isn't actually better than the old one.  After all, all realities are only approximations aren't they?

Maybe not, I mean if the other guy is holding a gun for example Shocked

I'd do more research up front about quality of teachers, available studios, etc.  Two wasted years, here.  Undecided

only 2? Undecided

I think thats a 'right of passage'.  But its not really unusual: 'learning how to learn' is a crucial part of every goal.

If I were to take up anything new, knowing what I know now, I'd be much better off than I was when I started dancing.  Back then, there was so little access to information.  Everything was word of mouth and there was very little information on the internet, comparatively speaking.

I often think it would be nice if a dance community, such as this one, were to put together a checklist of criteria for choosing a good dance teacher/studio.

Unless you're well-connected, you are really at their mercy when you walk into a dance studio for the first time.

nother great idea.  Why not start a topic on 'the ideal dance studio for starting dance' and we'll all chip in.

As long as we approach it from a positive perspective (i.e. NOT rotten dance teacher tricks to avoid  Grin )  I'm in. Smiley
