    Got the two following remarks in a recent lesson: "you look like a sloth." "what are you doing with your arms? you look like you are in a mariachi band!" those are two pretty random things to get during a lesson. It was even funnier because he then imitated a sloth AND then a mariachi player. YES, PEOPLE, I PAY FOR THIS. :):rofl:

    The studio co-owner says, "You pay for this??" to me all the time when my teacher is doing an imitation of something less-than-stellar that I did..

    But then you could conceivably respond to your coach when you manage to do something really nicely by quoting Kirk Cousins: "You like that! You like that!"

    This had better refer to either tango or paso; or, you've still got some 'splainin' to do. :)

    Samba - it's a push-pull sort of move that has to be done pretty fast.

    "because you're not 100%, you danced more released and relaxed. it's like you were in 'safe mode'" i am still giggling from that. (IT NERD ALERT)

    My coach, soon after having a baby, described my dancing that day like a quality car seat. There's the car seats that are cheap and, while they are functional, don't look all that nice or put together. On that I looked like a quality stitched car seat.

    I can neither confirm nor deny that my pro and I have been in discussions about a winter showcase piece that involves one of those t-rex costumes that you see people post videos of people doing things in on Facebook and the like. :D

    "We should take a video of your face and put it in your 'spoofs' file for future reference"! ..Teacher does painful imitation.... All part of competition prep. Obviously have to get this smiling gig under control :)

    Overheard during a recent studio showcase when one of the instructors was dressed like a pirate:

    Student: Sir, are you here to rob me?
    Instructor: No, that will happen during our private lesson this next Wednesday evening.
