Re: International vs. American

American style, while easier than International and popular, is not competed anywhere except here in the USA.

The consensus is that International style is the more challenging technique.

Pro-am and social dance relies heavily on American style - if you are not interested in real competition but merely Pro-am, I'd suggest you do American. Ditto the 'social scene'.

One side note: There are many studios out there. Merely going to the most convenient is not a good way to go - be an educated consumer and look around.

The best coaches are usually independent (plus, they're usually much cheaper than 6 week wonders or chain salesfolks) and they do not offer 'contracts'.

Do a search here and other sites re: lessoning.
