I agree with what you say. But what is the link that turns a social dancer into a professional one? I know that qualification is a key to that process (but there are plenty of teachers who are not qualified) and I'm sure that it is a step quite near the beginning of professional development, not the end goal.
What I don't want to do is just take ever-more classes and private lessons, and make no progress towards a teaching goal. What do I need to do (or, perhaps the question should be "What should be my approach towards my teachers") that will set m,e on the road?
