Hi everyone!

I too refuse all salsa dances.  I just cannot warm up to the music or the dance and will not put myself through misery to accommodate a request to dance that dance.   And I do and will refuse to dance with any lead who hurts me physically. 
I actually like salsa - but don't get to do it very often.

Hmmm thinks....

It's a lot less expensive than ballroom, that's for sure.

And cha is also right.  Guys who aren't good at it seem awfully fond of jerking arm sockets.  Not my fave.

that is what I like about dancing in australia...you get a variety. most of the dances we go to ave ballroom, latin, new vogue and rocknroll and a bit of salsa. not too much of anything. So if you dont know a style you can so so and then any potential partner will just move on to the next one that can do that style

but what if you want to just dance ballroom?  Does that mean sitting out 90% of the dances:P

that's why I go to ballroom only studios - if I ever go (which I don't seem to any more Undecided )

there are other groups that just do ballroom. but here it is the other way round. NV is king on the social scene.

Just curious.  How does  New Vogue work, when it comes to asking for a dance?  Do you automatically know to bring your own partner?  Or does the pairing up happen at the dance itself?

both those scenarios work, there are singles tables and couples, we also have progressives where you change partners, the only down side is that not one man (other than my partner) can chasses waltz.

I think you take the hand of the person infront/behind you.  I remember these from my childhood where we did sequence dancing - possibly some of the ones that were at the root of NV.
