    Tango shoes

    Anyone has anything to share about their shoe experience with open heel cage? I have one and I thought they don't hold up, or so "solidly" fixed to my feet as closed shoes. I don't know if this's because the front was slightly loose as well. What say the others?

    Tango shoes

    This thread is dedicated to all the shoe-addicted tangueras out there. Shoe shopping is always a headache for me. Would like to know if anyone has got any feedback to these several main shoe brands, such as style, balance, comfort, size, etc etc? I believe the feedbacks will be helpful...

    Lunch Time Club!

    Wow! Ha! I could hardly believe this! I've been away for too long really. The last time I regularly get online at Dance Forum was end of 2005. After some big changes in my life (I moved from the states to Germany), I kinda stop. Well, The lunch Time Club was started back then in 2005 I...

    Hello all and help!

    Thanks Motardmom for sharing! In fact, I did feel like you did in the beginning here. :) It was tough adjustment. First of all it took a few months to find an apartment (kind of complicated here since you have to look in the news paper and make individual appointment to check out the...

    Hello all and help!

    Thanks! Great thanks for the support! Waltzgirl, thanks a bunch for your kind advice. In fact, I have thought of taking lessons, that'd be a great way for me to get back. But I guess I got to a point that dancing became so exhausting for me that I just keep thinking but no action. When I...

    Hello all and help!

    Hello people! My dancing friends, I am back! I logged in today and saw that my last log in was November 7th 2005! So it's been a year! Well a year ago I packed up my apartment and said goodbye to friends and family and moved alone from the US to Germany. I have to say that I had quite a...

    Help! Need instructional video for AT!

    I'm looking for an instructional AT video as a gift for a friend. He has never danced AT before but is a very good ballroom dancer. I showed him some basic steps of AT and he appeared to be getting it very quickly, with the proper frame and even the "floor scraping", totally getting the flavor...

    dance shoes to street shoes

    I've never done this but I know that most shoe repairs stores do have that service. I never do this because I have no reason to. But I have a friend who has big feet and according to him it is next to impossible for him to find a pair of dance shoes that he likes and fits him. So he took his...

    Relocation Thread

    Thanks for your kind words Pygmalion and etchuck! At this point I haven't made any official commitment, I guess I need a little time to digest this before I'm ready to announce it to the world. (OK, somehow I'm announcing it out loud here in this forums :roll:). It was funny how in the...

    Relocation Thread

    I am definitely moving in a few months! I have gotten three job offers so far and one of them is in... Germany! Although one of the offers I got here in the states is very very generous but unfortunately located in the middle of nowhere (no dancing :cry: ). After having the interview and...

    Eye Wear Thread

    Oh, forgot to add this. I once read an article that says that psychologists think that wearing "fake glasses" (without corrective lens) when you don't need one is a sign of lack of confidence. Any comments for this?

    Eye Wear Thread

    I've been wearing contacts since 10 years go. I can't live without it, I can't "use" my eyes too much when I'm wearing glasses because it gives me headache and usually after reading a while in my glasses my eyes get really tired, not to say the pressure behind my ears. Well, I do like how I...
