Its a bit of a dour topic but I think its healthy to consider anyway - I mean sooner or later its going to happen to all of us (hopefully not for the next centrury or so Roll Eyes )

What would you do if suddenly you found - lets say due to an accident rather than resources or time - that you could no longer dance with a partner the way you do now. 

Would you quit the dance world entirely?  Find a new role within it to stay connected?  Or even find a way to dance whatever (e.g. wheelchair dancing)?

I will stay involved in the dance world. do my accreditation to either teach or become an adjudicator, work in in the area of promotion to get more people into the sport.

I'd probably get involved with scrutineering, and with writing software for managing comps.

Well, I guess it would depend on the reason.  If I could not dance but I was physically okay I would get back into the riding much more.  I would do something in dancing stll, perhaps judge, teach or both.  I would possibly think of getting into dance retail or services.

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'd go back to horseback training/instruction, get a 16'2hh chestnut 5-gaited ASB with all black feet, preferably a gelding, minimal white, and finish him out haute ecole.

Never answered this myself! 

I'd spend hours playing the violin.  But I fear that I might also pine, maybe pine away from my loss of movement....
