    The Challenge of Competitions

    We were married for thirty years before we started dancing! Maybe not great idea for the quality of our dancing, but the history together sure helps our relationship when the dancing isn;t working

    The Challenge of Competitions

    My wife and I compete together, at a very basic level. We are novice dancers, barely, and will probably stay novice dancers for as long as we dance. Do we occassionally fight aver it? Yeah, sometimes. Mostly because of external factors or as part of of other issues. Sometimes directly because...

    Attention and attraction

    NOt quite sue how to split quotes, so I guess I'll just throw in my once cents worth. For job interviews, it is important that you dress to the job. If the job/position is selling multimillion dollar airplanes, look the part. If the job is working on multimillion dollar airplanes, look that...

    No Constitutional Right

    You know, I'm 51. I lived through some of the racial strife in the 60's. I never really understood the rascism thing. I understand it exists, even though in the midwest growing up, it really didn't seem to come out nor was I exposed to it. I was exposed to it while spending some time in the...

    No Constitutional Right

    And mine as well. Any government body, run by any party or group, is loathe to give up the money they pillage and steal from the populace. Democrat, Republican, Socialist, Libertarian, all of them Once they have their hooks in, and the money is flowing in, and they can spend it to their whims...

    No Constitutional Right

    Agreed, WHen People refer to free expression, they are generally talking about free speech. However, not all forms of expression, are constitutionally protected speech. I also believe you would have a difficult time getting dance recognized as "speech" as it is not likely, though it can be...

    No Constitutional Right

    That may be true, however if you read some of the thoughts of the founding fathers, it it political speech that they were concerned with, and the examples given were all political in nature. I am not arguing the correctness of the law, only the constitutional aspect of regarding it as what is...

    No Constitutional Right

    Possibly, but that is NOT the intent of those wanting to dance in other places other than those with cabaret liscence. I understand your point, and I would suppose that you could try it and see, but my thinking is that it would not fly. I think that you wouldhave a hard time convincing an...
