If you are not connected to a studio, who is teaching you? I don't know where you live but go to www.dcdancenet.com and this is on the east coast but you can hook into the events around the country. See if you can place your name on a list to have a partner your age...partners looking for partners. let me know what you found. Have MOM help. I am sure she knows about this stuff too. Did you go to the social? How's the new puppy?

i am taking a community learning class with the local community college. i live in the san diego area... west coast. no i did not get to go to the social, but there is an open class at the same place on sunday... i'll try to see if my mom can take me to that one. my mom likes the ballroom dancing, but isn't that into it. she is also taking the comunity class and wants to keep taking it, but is not at all interested in a studio, and i, of course, cannot pay for lessons at a studio on my own. and i am too young to get a job. oh well, i shall keep trying and stick with the classes i can go to... hopefully i can go to some socials and maybe find a partner. thans for the advice.

If you are really passionate about dancing, do things yourself, don't wait for your parents. If they see that you are dedicated enough, it will be a sign to them that it would be worth it to drive you somewhere or pay for a couple of classes. Use Google, the yellow pages, etc just like you would look for anything else. Ask around, be resourceful. People aren't going to do things for you! If you start working hard now it will pay off in the end. Believe me.

forgot to mention- a lot of studios have group classes for young people which cost less. Also, there might be a partner for you at another studio.
