It's complicated by the fact that it can be difficult to find an instructor who supports that approach.  Ts reminds me of the discussion we had in the "why do people expect you to compete' thread.  It seems that there are generally two choices -- a "social" studio,where technique may notbe the focus, or a competitive studio, where you are *encouraged* to compete.  There usually  is no middle ground. *shrug*
time to start your own dance chain Smiley

the problem then is finding a reason why the clients should want to learn more than the steps.  there will always be a few that do - but they do tend to go the comp route.  The rest - that is your group - is I suspect a relatively small fraction.

In the ballroom world, for sure. Smiley  But  wonder if that's because of the way people are or because of the way ballroom instruction is structured. In the AT world, or example, competitive dancers are by far the exception but people who strive for excellence (it seems to me) ar the rule.

Dona nobis pacem.
