We are putting together an Official PDO Partner Dance Kit for issue to all members.  What do we need in it?

This springs from ballroom advanced where Tangotime has been teaching the essentials of ballroom dancing with:

A ball and a ruler (you will have to peruse the thread to understand, I'm surely not going to explain Cheesy)
To which I would add:

A large knife for trimming foot corns....

Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but she did it backwards and in high heels.

It takes an athlete to dance, but an artist to be a dancer.

A 20-gallon water bottle, as a substitute partner.   Grin  (Naturally, you're supposed to use an empty one.  Although sometimes I do use a full one.  Shocked)

OK then Wink. Here is a few more......a staircase, playing cards, a golf ball, a tennis ball, exercise ball and elastic bungee cords of different lengths.

More will come as I remember them or unpack my suitcase/dance bags
