    Questions for fellow studio owners & teachers

    Well, that's true. You definitely need to make sure it's not spammy. It needs to be very fun and not promotional at all. And there will still be people who don't want to see multiple posts, but the way the algorithms work, the more posts and activity you have, the more visible your page will...

    Managing Multiple Students at same Level, Age

    I'm personally very surprise that you are the one who has to worry about this. Let your pro and the studio work that stuff out. That's why you're paying them. You should be able to go to every competition you want to go to and not have to worry about how they are going to work it out. If...

    How many basic steps in a dance?

    Competition dancing and social dancing are very different, IMO. If you are a competitive dancer, you can easily learn how to social dance well, but I've danced with competitive dancers that weren't great social dancers. Namely, my husband. He's wonderful, I adore him, but I don't often dance...

    What are the dangers of learning patterns?

    I'm wondering if your teacher isn't going to start teaching you patterns soon, and just wanted to you feel the music first. Maybe get the feeling of leading into your body before she starts giving your mind things to think about.

    What I Learned At My Last Comp

    This happens to me, except it's all dances the day before competition. Without fail, I will have a horrendous dance day on my very last lesson before competition. But, I've stopped caring because I always seem to do OK, even in the dances that have been a little neglected.

    Best New Songs

    Official Ballroom Song ID Thread

    Greetings. I'm looking for bolero music. I saw some of the recommendations that have already been posted, but nothing quite suits what I'm looking for. It's a solo, so timing can change a bit, but mostly I just want something passionate. Any recommendations? TIA
