not necessesarily.  I have my level 0 but have never taught anybody.  It was basically for me.  I learned so much.  Only problem is with level 0 you have to do all three styles so there is a lot to learn. Smiley mm

Through your "five minutes" in the sport, you've gotten much better then some others who have spent years. At the very (very very) least, you could teach medallists very competently.

Well....I've never done a registered latin comp myself and I've taken students through their bronze bar latin with honours.

You don't have to be a level 5 competitor to be a good teacher.

Q, it's good to read that you're back on the floor Smiley

My partner's injury has progressed to the point where we can foresee that dancing is no longer in his future.

We've discussed, and it has been decided that I shall start the (likely fruitless) search for a no strings attached dance partner. I have to at least try.

I have done my grieving and am ready to do something constructive about the situation. I can't not dance.

thanks it has felt great to start to amek moves to be back on the floor. but I am pacing myself as I need it to be permenent and not back in the same situation in 12 weeks.

siorry to hear about your partern that would be a devastating blow for both of you.....I did say to V that if I could not get on the flor I wanted him to get another partner. but I dont know if he would do it.

life takes twists and turns and you just dont know what will come your way.

thinking of you both!

My leg did the right thing for me and allowed us to have success at the australians. Now I have to give back to my leg....It is not happy at the moment, the knee cap is not running properly...so in the next few weeks I will cycle and walk in water...to build it back up...

Not that anything was said but I did feel a pressure( even if I made it myself) to get back on the floor, I feel we dont have to much time to be competative.

But injuries are very frustrating and certainly tests one's paitence Roll Eyes
