Samina- In terms of escape I was referring to accepting her offer and then discovering that it wasn't going to work out. Sweavo- As for appropriateness, I suppose it depends upon the mores of a specific locale or studio. In my area, it is assumed that dancing is just dancing and casual dating isn't done. A club is an entirely different story. He describes her as "wedding crashers" style "i see you" and he feels awkward. If I did that (i'm a guy), I'd be labelled a creep. Generally, if you're a guy who is fairly normal, socially adept and can dance there's plenty of opportunity. Your studio is best kept uncomplicated. IMHO.
