Your a gentleman and a scholar.  Hope all works out and you have a good time and enjoy the experience, you deserve it.

 Kiss

Actually, I almost had a change of plans last night.  Another lady (who danced as a lead in my group class last night to balance it out  Cool)  was supposed to dance three routines with her instructor in a studio showcase next month.  However, a few weeks ago, her instructor reached the conclusion that he couldn't live off of teaching income any more and he had to go out and find other employment, so as of now, he's not teaching.  That left her high and dry for the showcase.  I found out about this last night, and after the class, I asked her if she'd like to dance one of the routines with me.  However, it turns out that the choreography for the routines was never finished, and since we only have four weeks and neither of us has done much choreography, it was just going to be too much too soon.

...and we revisit the injured Dance Partner issue.

Sigh.

I really don't want to have to sit out the spring/summer season with no dancing. And now I feel guilty for whining, I'm not the one in pain. Gah.

Thanks for listening.

Is there a friend you can have as a practise partner while you wait?  If you get someone in a totally different age group or that is the wrong height its less likely to become a problem. Shocked

Of course HE will also need attention... (poor guy - get him on PDO, he might like to stay connected with dance this way...)

I'm putting some thought into finding a practice partner but the required variables are daunting, to say the least  Tongue

yes I would be looking out to fix my issues...if V was injured... I am sure he would do the same also. but depends on how long the injury was going to be. Undecided

out was an incorrect word... I would be working on issues that need fixing....as most of the time in a lesson it is V who gets the attention, but I know what I do is not right all the time...

I practice alone quite a bit already, Q, and must admit to getting a bit bored.

Anyway, he seems to be on the mend, and hoping that this weekend we can do some ballroom practice.

In the meantime, I've been doing some bellydancing classes (such fun!) and might even go to some line dancing, again just for fun.

Why, yes, I AM addicted to dance. Why do you ask? Wink

I am assuming you are back training. currently I am injured and have to rest my knee. not sure how long for but V wont train without me. I was happy for him to still have a lesson but we are a TEAM Tongue. Hopefully after a week of rest it may be good enough to start again. I would hate to think it would be six months Undecided
