I'd like to make a list of places where you can advertise for, or find a partner.
New post for each site...

I guess people here don't look for dance partners? *grin*
 
To state the obvious: dancepartner.com

A pretty good site overall, IMHO. Nice  support. To bad they can't control how many suitable  people actually sign up. *sigh*

well I will look to see and ask others but most of the couples that I am aware have found partners on the Dance sport Australia one, but then again they are looking local

They are facebook groups, but I think they work as well

https://www.facebook.com/groups/2204966165/

This is mostly in the midwest (though there are dancers from other places posting)

Interesting.  I didn't know those facebook groups existed.   Most of the posts look like legitimate queries, although  did see a couple that looked like pros trolling for pro-am students.  But still.  A great resource.  Smiley

We have a dancepartner.com topic here.  There are some other negatives - mostly the price Shocked Shocked

Trouble with these is that its hard to screen them for specific needs - height, dance styles etc ...

Yes.  Some of the queries also leave out vital information, such as ... where the person lives.   Roll Eyes  lol   Kinda hard to decide if I want you as a partner if I don't know what continent you're on.

All valid point - however, I think the strengths of these groups are
1. Cheap. You really only need a fb account.
2. It is like networking in Business. I remember reading a person posted for an request, and another person posted a reply saying that you might want to contact so and so person.
3. I don't know, it seems to me that most of them have the "vital info" - beside, you can always leave a reply/message.

... but if you have a particular goal the chance of finding someone in your city with similar interests and level is virtually 0.  Its bad enough on DP.com and there there are a broad range of filters and a very large dancer database...

True. Cool  I think the page might be better if there was some sort of form or filter, so that people remember what information is needed.

That looks like a pretty good site,overall, and i think that narrowing it down to Australia makes a lot of sense.  Smiley
