When you are standing at the bus stop and spontaneously decide that you need to "grow" a couple of extra centimeters.

.. well, really its when you are standing at the bus stop and spontaneously decide that you need to "grow" a couple of extra centimeters - and then you DO grow an extra couple of centimeters (and pull the shoulders down, straighten the neck, etc etc until you are in full dance position. 

Most crucial is that you don't stop until you have completed it - and then get totally embarassed by the onlookiers who wonder what rare disorder you are suffering from

When you stretch and get into full ballroom hold, because it just comes naturally.

When you Excelsior Schottische (I spelt it!!!) through the deli because 'Isn't She Lovely' is on, and the customers give you odd looks and you don't care!

Well, I was doing a couple of boxes, and I figured the start was sort of like then, then I felt like doing a hell turn...

a hell turn?  is that when your tail gets in the way?
I actually love them now - do them in a continuous series round the floor (alone) they are very restful...

That was a typo, or perhaps it's my subconsious overriding my thinking brain.

I listen to Tango music in the car and SNAP my head to the music. Well mostly stuck in traffic in peak hour. It scares the crap out of people in the car beside me.  Tongue

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.
