Fascination - I am intrigued by this, a small part of an earlier post from you, which I have cut and pasted here. Your quote included: social dancing is a messy business...in time you get over that and just accept it for what it is... but it is true that the only way to get okay with that is to do more of it and get over the ego drain of trying to make it go well every time End of quote With all of your experience, just how tough do you feel that social dancing is, compared to dancing with a pro, with a practice partner, or in a competition or Showcase? In other words, what is this "messy business" of social dancing, from your perspective? We only do social dancing, and not competitions or Showcases, and I will give it a go with any follower. It goes well, or OK, or not so great, but I never thought of it as a messy business. Can you explain? You have so much more experience and so I'm curious.
