    I just made a list and it's long but I wouldn't want to cut it down. Stopped at 30 for Glasgow alone but I'm sure there's someone I've forgotten.

    These are partners that I would happily dance almost all night with as they're fun and with most of them I have at one time or another. So I guess that would also put me somewhere on their list too. :) A few of them have left Glasgow now and returned to their home countries.

    For London, which is my favourite place to go now, I have a few favourite partners but it's early days yet and there's a lot of choice! I love variety! :D

    (missed this thread!)

    Lol! Yup! I sure do!

    Do most of them go out all much any more? I didn't see more than 1/2 of them the last two times I visited Denver.

    What's odd is that of all the friends I made in the Denver salsa scene, I think I have more friends who used to be in the scene than are now currently in the scene.

    But then again, that fits my desciption of a healthy scene. One which has a constant inflow and outflow of dancers.

    And on a related note: one of my current favs here in DC is moving! It's too bad cuz I haven't gotten nearly enough dances with her!

    I can only come up with 5:


    That's just for social dancing, doesn't count instructors (even when I have the opportunity to social dance with them). :)

    Not that any of you know who any of them are. :)

    My friend SugarGlider said to me the other day: "I've got 3 people on my Top 10 list, and you are one of them.....!"

    I thought it was hilarious, but very flattering at the same time :lol: !

    Well, since I'm only shorter than 3 leads that I see regularly, I'd have to say they are my favorites. (And when I put my ballroom shoes on, I'm actually taller than 2 of them, but it's close enough that we work thru it ok.) Luckily, I really like to dance with all three of them. 8)

    It bites to be a vertically gifted woman in the land of vertically challenged people. I'm only 5'8" (more with my shoes on.)

    There are quite a few more people that I see dancing and I think, "Gosh, if their head didn't end right in my chest, they'd be totally fun to dance with." :(

    Oh well, MTM. :? What's a vertically gifted girl to do, but dance with the three available guys and enjoy herself. *shrug*

    I started to list them and.....

    geeze i can't list them all. There are too many. From LA to Washington DC, from San Fransicso to San Diego and from DC to NYC. Just too too many.

    And a lot of them locally have danced with me from a beginner to an intermediate beginner today.

    Let me try to remember a few favorites:
    Alice from DC(Clavekasi), Irene from SF, Nari in Korean, Christina from Chi Town (Descarga Caribe), a lady name Janet I danced with at Jimmy's in NYC, Yessi from NJ. Yvette, Iriyali, Liz Lira, Carla (missing in action), and Sonyu here in LA a red hair Russian in Aussy and many ladies in SD with I can't recall their names.

    And yea Rob I am with you on this: Nancy previously from Denver. :p

    Only up to 2 right now but over time that will increase significantly:

    1) Courtney
    2) Ashlyn (a competitive dancer here in Atlanta, amazing on a dance floor very sweet and about as ego-less as one can get).

    I was thinking more along the lines of "here's another salsa wanderer :shock:" but I know what you mean about faces without names. I have a few of those too.

    I'm with you on this, the women that have always danced a couple with me from the time I started learning until now(and beyond) always get preference in my book. I agree Alice from CK is an awesome dancer.

    My favorites, in general they know who they are:).
