If,as a competitive ballroom dancer, you were fortunate enough to pick a place to live based on opportunities to get excellent training, where would you live?  Why?

Ah. Yes.  I contemplated adding that into the topic, but figured why limit the conversation?  Yes.  Preferred dance style definitely plays a role.  For example, in the US, the Eastern seaboard is probably the best place overall, if you're looking for standard -- Boston and New York come to mind.

I think there are a few possibilities.

One of the ideal city would be like where there are high level (world class) coaches, and the average level of the dancer is just about bronze - so less competition for teaching (therefore more fund for more lessons!). Of course, the less competition for teaching is more of a hypothesis.

On the other hand, living around a lot of high level dancers is also good. Some peer pressure/help makes you better. I think that that is why New York is so good for competitors (or London).

well the eastern seaboard in Australia has the most dancers but good coaches are across Australia including the West but that is a long way away. for a small state where I live we hve always punched above our weight, not sure why that is but have not felt disadvantaged.

But east is the dominate location

I think militz brings up good issues around price.  Not sure how supply and demand plays into things (if it does at all) but I would think that the price of world class coaches would be lower in places where they're in plentiful supply.

I wonder if that's true.

Depends on whether dancers are in an even more plentiful supply - the supply and demand ballance. 

Lots of top coaches in NY, I don't think they are cheaper there tho Shocked

If I am guessing correctly...it makes no sense. The one I thought of requires some understanding of classical Chinese literature/history to get the reference...which diminishes the possibility of it being the correct interpretation.
