Hi, folks. Just returned from a fabulous night out dancing, but I had something happen today that really upset me. While dancing with a fabulous (and extremely experienced) dancer whom I know very well, he started making faces when I made a mistake. He was in a bad mood to start with, saying all sorts of ungracious things about people who bumped into us and the generally pleasant man turned into a real grump muffin. Then, when I missed his lead on an American spin thrice he made the most horrid, nasty face at me, as if to say, "God, what the hell am I doing. You're and idiot.'' He even had the gall to let out a groan of distress. By the third time (and having danced three bloody complicated dances with him, at his request) I got so upset (wounded as opposed to angry) that I literally said, "fine, you don't want to dance with me? Then don't" and walked off a very crowded dancefloor. As you can imagine, it caused a bit of an uspet and though he did eventually come up and apologise, I'd love to hear if anyone else has had a similar situation arise and how they handled it. Did you stick it out, or stick it to the partner? I know I've committed the ultimate dancing faux pas and probably should have stuck it out, but his behaviour was so pedestrian and nasty, that I honestly think I did the right thing...besides, by the end of the night he came up, apologised profusely and admitted to being "an old woman at times when I'm grumpy.''
