I talked to my coach last night about doing some pro/am comps next year. He thought that would be a great idea. Now I must chose a partner. His wife is amazing on the dance floor, but is currently expecting their first child in November. She is in her mid 30s and has competed many times. She is also about 5' 9" tall. I am almost 6'1". So we would be a great fit for Smooth... but she is thinking about taking a year off once the baby is born. (A great idea in my opinion!) My other option is a younger instructor (20ish). She is a tiny little girl, just a little over 5' tall. She has no experience in competition but is a great teacher and a great dancer. I am over 50 years old and with the difference in height, I am afraid we would not look "right" dancing Smooth together. Any suggestions?
