I thought this was better to go here, as full-on conversations aren't really practical in the middle of a comp.

When dancing, do you prefer to dance in silence, with a little bit of chatter, or with a full on conversation going.

For me it depends. Often I will be talking to DP off of the floor, and we will continue our conversation while dancing. Alternatively, we also have been known to remain silent and let the mood of the dance blossom (especially in Rumba, but then he ruins it by pushing his glasses up his nose in a mock-sexy way. it cracks me up)

So, which is it for you?

no talk except for imminent collissions!  I prefer to dance quiet so that I can enjoy the expression.  Besides, if I can talk to him I'm not in frame Smiley

I don't mind talking a bit, although dancing a lot of open figures tends to interrupt the conversation.   Cheesy

aaaa, no talking during competition. i mean during dancing on the floor.

only if he make a mistake - "i will kill you later" is coming out of my mouth.  Cool

but we use a language of a body. we had a good connection and with our eyes, arms, body we were able to change direction, even if we are in apart position.



on the socials - mostly my students talk.  Grin

No, never when on the floor. We communicate in a big way, but not vocally. It's like trying to have a conversation during a marathon run, to me - completely impractical.

Does the sound of your breath getting knocked out or your partner's groan when you accidentally hit him in the head still count as silence or just a little bit of conversation?   Grin

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

I think it's nice to say "hi" and everything, but then it's good to just leave it, and eenjoy the dance; not have to worry about what your partner's saying or if you've missed something they've said (this is a constant worry for me in everyday life, with my hearing loss, I don't want to have to worry about it on the dance floor too!)

I hope that does not present a problem for dancing - actually come to think of it I've been taught to follow the lead and not the music - really makes them happy Wink
