without telling me. I'm devestated...and I don't know what to do... :cry: :cry: :cry:
omg I feel your pain...I would be shattered...but ...well not buts...I just feel your pain and would be shattered...hug hug hug...come party with me next weekend
....I can't survive an entire week without dance! I need a new instructor pronto....
Is he teaching elsewhere?
So, who else is there in your area?
there are others....thats the spirit man...he was great but he wasnt the dance was he? that is what is truly indespenable
No.....he has too much work with his other job, so he's quit teaching altogether. Otherwise I'd change studios.
And I don't even know who else is in my area! I didn't do the whole "shopping" thing when I first started because I had a gift certificate. So now I'm kind of confused. Anyone know any good teachers in the Indianapolis area?
And no....he's not worth giving up dance completely. He was just such a good teacher.
well isnt rauno (i)elo in indy? I'd look wherever he is first...
Ok, I just googled him. Amazing creds. I want to make sure he's a good teacher, though, not just a good dancer.
A shame he didn't say goodbye. But, maybe that's the studio's policy, to prevent the students from following them?
It's hard to breakaway from your (first?) instructor(s). Look at it as an opportunity to grow.
Ilo is great, as is Gert Roselender (I think that's how you spell it). Also, isn't Erminio Stefano in Indy?
btdt. It felt like a betrayal, to me. It gets better, though. Honestly. It gets better.
I think that's kinda what sucks about some dance studios. They try to make you feel comfortable about dance by building a rapport with your teacher -- one specific teacher. But if your teacher leaves unexpectedly, you just feel betrayed and vulnerable. It hurts. :?
I don't really feel betrayed....I mean, he had pretty valid reasons for quitting. I'm just sad because I'll never get to dance with him again.....and I'll probably never see him again.
I know how you feel. But, maybe he will be teaching someplace else, but that's the story they dish out. I've seen that happen before.
Maybe.....but I doubt it.
Yeah. I agree, GD44M. If your teacher and you have a rapport, ask him where he's going and whether he intends to continue teaching dance.
The problem is, I don't know how to get in touch with him!
i am willing to bet one of his other students has his cell number....snoop around
Well, I know one who does. She competes with him, and is his best student. The reason I'm pretty sure he's not switching studios is because his student had talked to him before he quit, and he told her that he was simply quitting, and not intending to teach anywhere else.
