    I've always cringed at the thought of what would happen if you tried to do a heel click in glass slippers ;)

    One evening at a dance workshop I was walking back to my cabin and there was a bra on the ground (obviously it had fallen out of someone's laundry basket). Nevertheless, I couldn't help but think of the Cinderella story...

    A very special level of hell. A level they reserve for child molesters and people who talk at the theater.

    But a bonus is that it's easier to use those hot fix rhinestones.

    But they won't stay on because the glue can never cool enough to set.

    Dancing is allowed in hell, but only line dancing. It is hell, after all.

    Oh, sure, it seems like a fun dance now, but after the five thousandth straight heat of it?

    (Feel free to replace the joke with polka or other dance that you might prefer.)

    Wow, are people really this creepy? I haven't been around enough to have seen one of these people at the studio (or recognize it if I did).

    Oh, no. They're usually much much worse, and when you walk in, they turn it up just because they know it gives you the vapors.

    Yes. *I*, for one, am this creepy. But I pay my bills, and I don't get scared off by lessons on technique, and I've outlasted a LOT more students who come into the studio and claim that they are serious about learning to dance - so for better or for worse, the proprietors of the studio let me stick around, even if my dancing skills don't reflect the effort that I put in. But it does make me cranky/creepy at times.

    Demoiselle, I can't bring myself to read back through the pages of this thread to give you a real answer. Much of this thread is over the top, but there are definitely elements of truth to a lot of it. Lots of students get jealous of their teacher's relationship with other students and, for example, count how many dances are given to each student at a dance. The parts directly about crushes apply to non-teachers as well (thinking some innocent comment on the crushee's part means more than it does, for example). There are definitely students out there who think they matter the most to their teacher because they spend more money, dance better, or both. And that they deserve preferential treatment for that reason. And there are teachers who do give students like that preferential treatment.

    Don't clutch those pearls too tightly, people.
