"Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn."

"I'm going back to Charleston, back where I belong. I'm through with everything here. I want peace. I want to see if somewhere there isn't something left in life of charm and grace."  Ahhhh, truer words were never spoken.  Charleston simply IS charm and grace.

I used to only do Latin.  Then I was seduced by the Dark Side!   Roll Eyes

Now I enjoy dancing Standard more, but I'm trying to bring Latin up to the same level.

Latin IS the Dark Side for me.  I thought I was a Standard dancer for a while.  I most decidedly am NOT.

Hey, I do a lot of rhythm.  That sort of counts.   Cheesy  And unlike some male "rhythm" dancers, I try to cover the spectrum, instead of just doing primarily swing.  (Although I do like me some WCS!)

If they only dance swing, would they even be considered Rhythm dancers?

And as for WCS... *scoots as C's hand whisks by her bottom* Wink

Hey, I've improved that move!  As you go by, I swing my hand, but then I slap myself in the leg.  SMACK!   Grin

Mmm-hmmm.  *squinty eyebrows*

I sorta-kinda do all 4. Well, I have started out doing smooth and rhythm, then I have dropped rhythm and was doing smooth and standard for a while, and now I mainly work on those two, but also trying to bring rhythm and latin up to speed. One of the comps I want to do offers closed 10 dance and 9 dance events, and I would like to do them next time we do that comp. I would say that standard is my favorite style, though, if I had to pick just one, I would have picked that.
