Yesterday I took a Cha Cha Cha workshop in which one of the participants was a competitive dancer. I noticed her reactions as she rotated through several of the guys. She was getting pretty frustrated to say the least. Anyway, when she finally rotated over to me she was extremely surprised at the way I danced and gave me compliments on my frame and lead. Then she asked, "Where did you learn to dance? Do you compete?" When I told her no she was surprised. She almost gave me the impression that she couldn't believe I only wanted to be a 'mere' social dancer. Does that seem to be the predominant attitude of competitive dancers out there?
