This came up from Rugby's comment on changing studio/coaches when you reach the point of 'diminishing returns'. 

Thus, you take lessons with a (in this case usually very nice) coach but gradually you seem to be learning less and less.  And you figure out that you are reaching the limit of the coach.  How do you decide?  And worse, how do you actually move without trauma?

I've been at that point only a couple of times but it surely was one of the hardest decisions that I had to make.

Oh this is an interesting one!! I tend to be very loyal to the dance instructors I've had. Shortly before my hiatus I had an issue where I was the only student this pro had that was advanced Bronze. So I ended up learning with and teaching him for three lessons before I came to my senses and had to pick up another pro fro the studio "test".

Currently I'm with a pro that is very experienced on the teaching side, (10+years) so I think I have quite a bit more to learn before it becomes an issue of my loyalty biting off my nose to spite my education. :-)
