whenever you hear a song, instead of regular lyrics, you find yourself singing "One, two, three... One, two, three...", or "Quick, quick, slow...", etc. And it feels right to do so.

as bookworm also said...it becomes a dancers occupational hazard.... Grin

...you're at the gym on the treadmill and you realise you're 'quick, quick and slowing' and '1, 2, 3-ing' to the music...

and

...every time you meet a person you haven't met/seen in a while, one of the first things they ask you is 'So how is your dancing going?'

good ones...

When the dancing stops you feel like your life did...

...the dancing never stops, even when you have a break from competing or talking lessons, you still find yourself going over steps or boogying around the house...

When every time your friend/colleague/even supervisor introduces you to someone, he/she would say "This is James, he's a ballroom dancer."

So I guess you know you ballroom dance when "ballroom dancer" starts to define who you are.

...when it becomes simply impossible to separate pushing a shopping cart with the connection of dance with a partner, and it takes conscious control to keep it in check while in public. course, sometimes i just don't give a flying rat's patootie, as whilst shopping yesterday:

"are you shopping or dancing, lady?" said by cute guy browsing the berries in the produce department. hey, all those twists and turns around the fruit & vedge kiosks are just heaven-made for latin drills, lolz. Cheesy
