It doesn't seem that many people on here compete in Latin, so was interested in what everyone competes/works on with their partners...

Both for now, but only at a low level. Once we get up to registered we'll probably stick to standard and NV, mostly because DP doesn't have the confidence for latin costumes and I can't be bothered tanning...

I wouldn't discount the possibility just yet, L.  I'm one of those annoying people that thinks you should dance whatever style speaks to you the most, and you might find that Latin does that more than Standard for you.  And besides, by the time you get registered DP might have the confidence and you might like Latin enough to try the tanning.

good advice - you should do latin when you are young if you ever want to be good at it.  And leave standard for us pensioners Cheesy
(there, just trying to reduce the competition a bit hehehehe...)

Well, I'm one of those non-traditional Latin dancers myself--I'm nowhere near the size 2-4 that seems to be necessary to dance Latin well (and yes, the tanning gets on my nerves too, but I do it anyway), nor am I particularly good at doing the "sexy" thing...but I just wasn't happy dancing Smooth, Rhythm, or Standard.

Oh really?  Why don't you ask J the next time you're up my way if he thinks I'm sexy?  (Or A in your own studio, for that matter...)

[honey, word to the wise: if a guy says you are sexy or good looking just smile and say thank you.  OK?  He might just mean it - actually my experience is that he would never say it if he did not.  Besides, its good for the complexion Cheesy]
