ahhhh, insideout_55 you made me smile!!! especially with the fact that you actually could tell i was a teenager. i feel so special now!

anyhow, its good to hear that i am not alone! ukraine, huh? pretty cool. how do you guys do in competition? what style of ballroom do you usually compete in? i have just started but have had an interest for a while. how do you take classes? i mean, are you at a studio or do you take community classes? and i am having troubles following well. do you think finding a more permanent partner would help? thanks

=) Well, we're preparing to compete. His standard isn't nearly as good as his latin, so we're still working things out and getting new choreography. Still in the beginning stages ;) I'm focusing on international style. I take classes at a studio where the private lessons are half off for under 18 (a great find w/a great teacher!). Also, my teacher is going to open his own studio w/a focus on kids. How long have you been dancing ballroom for? Don't worry so much about needing a permanent partner. You need to learn as much and practice as much as possible, and if that means getting a partner- go for it! It's never too early to start looking and having try-outs even just to practice with someone.

i have only been dancing for a little over a month ;( and the classes i took were with a community college so it was 2 hrs. every mon. night, but only for 5 mondays... and i havent gotten a book in the mail again yet saying when the next session of classes is. so for now, i am going to a local ballroom club- they have classes on fridays and sundays, along with open dancing and once a month they have socials.

that is pretty marvelous with the deal your getting on lessons! lucky duck. i want to practice more often but i don't have a partner... so it makes it just a little difficult. ;( thanks for your advice... it is neeto to hear from someone closer to my age who likes ballroom too!

I too started out with jazz and tap, which I found has really helped with ballroom. So no you are not a loner.

Yeah, I definately agree with you on the partner issue with ballroom that you don't have with jazz.

of course! i am having difficultiies finding even a girlfriend to take ballroom dance with me because the one who was is moving to texas... and my other friend is a loser and wont even just come and see what its like. so i cant find a partner and have no one to come and have fun with me... (yes she is sitting right here and i am doing this to make her feel guilty) and she just said she doesnt feel guilty... darn!

Wait, your friends who are girls don't even want to try ballroom???? Tell them they should feel guilty ;) If you want to show them some amazing ballroom (maybe persuade them) go to www.youtube.com and search for dancesport. Look through the videos and find something awesome to show them.
