Well this is just an observation, but I didn't realize it until I signed up with dancing, but down in the South, we have our Country Western studios and then our Ballroom studios. I have yet to see the two mix together. Is that common with Country Western? But then I got to thinking that the Country Western studios offer a bit of everything which includes the Cha Cha etc., but that again isn't Ballroom it's Country Western Cha Cha. Is that why people get confused? Because Ballroom and Latin to me is not Country Western, and when I talk to dancers even on here they say the same thing, so I'm curious to hear what you all have to say. When I pulled up the NDCA and the ISTD, everything was different from steps to what you learned even. And another reason why I said that is because I was confused when I first started. I didn't realize it either until I had done the research. Now, I love Country Western, and I even own a pair of boots! But International is where it's at for me right now. I absolutely love it too! And yes when I get in the craving, I still do some C&W once in a great while! Sorry... I meant to put this under C&W!!! I tried to change it, but you can't switch threads I guess. Sorry!!!
