All quotes are from Angel Hi... I am a member of DF to learn/seek advise), discuss, aquaint myself with other members, etc. I contribute to this particular thread, because I want to share my POV and opinions, regarding the topic. When I am seeking advice, yes, I do, very much want to hear it. However, as I should have been implying...I am in this thread to join in on the discussion. Just because I ask advise on certain things, doesn't mean I am not quite knowlegable on other things. (Why is that so hard to understand?) Angel Hi, the facts say otherwise. First, pros are very busy. Second, they spend a great deal of time performing, teaching, etc., etc. Dancing with someone that doesn't contribute anything (whether it's a wonderful experience, dancing to promote self or studio, etc). A pro. gets really burnt out on the social floor if they only have dances that are beneath their skill level. Missy is a pro. level salsa dancer....(and dang it,....I am not bragging), she scours the clubs,dance floor for dancers that will give here a great dance. Lately, she has been finding less and less. Lately, she has not been going out salsa social dancing as much. If she knows that some great dancers (or good friends) are going to be at a club/social that she can go to...she may go. Angel Hi,....it's just a fact....I am sorry to say. I have got to go pick up the kids...perhaps I will continue later.
