    Places to go dancing in Victoria, BC

    Salsa/Latin clubs would be good, Ballroom would fun, swing club or Tango bar, heck even a country dancehall. I don't care, as long as it's good dancing!

    Places to go dancing in Victoria, BC

    Hi everyone, I'm going on a business trip again, this time to Victoria, B.C., Canada. Anyone know of any good places to dancing on a week day? I'll only be there on the evening of Tuesday, Nov. 20. Seems unlikely, but it's worth a try.

    What does "ballroom" mean to you!

    My old link is broken, so here's the new one:

    Getting your kids involved in dance...

    Hmm, yes, although I certainly wouldn't mind taking a class with all ladies (;)) I could definiately see how an 8-year-old would hate it! Good point, I'll watch out for that. Out of curiosity, when did/does your son see you dance? Do you dance at home? Do you take him with you to dance...

    Too old or too young!!!

    This certainly seems to be a (at least an apparent) problem for many clubs/bars. Dancers seems to be notorious for not spending any money. And of course, it's even worse if there's no cover charge. I'm certainly guilty of it myself -- going out to a bar, dancing up a storm, drinking some...

    Getting your kids involved in dance...

    I've heard from fellow dancers in my area that dancing is just basically not in the youth culture much. At least not like it used to be. Once kids reach their teens, there's a good chance they'll want nothing to do with dancing. I guess that's why I'm thinking that they should be introduced...

    A question for the ladies...

    I think I can give an honest, despite being a guy ;) I for one love skirts for the reason Lucretia mentioned above: they are just fun to watch! Especially the medium length, frilly ones! The movement of the skirt is just hypnotising, especially when leading moves like swivels. Think of...

    Getting your kids involved in dance...

    My son is still very young now (1 and half years), but I'm amazed at how much he already likes dancing. Whenever there's music playing, he's always shaking his rump around, spinning around, and squatting up and down, up and down. It's incredibly adorable, as you can imagine. My wife and I...

    Learning not to hear the music

    In my opinion, you're losing something if you're consciously or unconsciously blocking out or the music. In essence, it's like you're reducing the music simply to a beat. It would be kind of like going out for dinner at a nice restaurant and turning off your nose and tastebuds! The food is...

    Does dancing make you question who you are?

    Dancing transformed me a lot of ways. No doubt, I am much more confidant, more extroverted, more socialable because of it. I also think I just enjoy life much more in general. I've always loved music, but dancing presented me with a whole new avenue for enjoying the music, and expressing how...

    I love these!!

    Yes, I've noticed the same thing. The laces are somewhat bothersome... Aside: Who the heck designs shoes laces these days anyway?! Why are they always "slippy" nylon? I am perpetually retying my laces when I'm out dancing. I end up having to tie my shoes so tight that I'm affraid my feet...

    I love these!!

    I also have a pair of these (but in all-black, not hot pink ;)). I purchased the shoes at an outlet sports/dance footwear store for around $80-90 Canadian. They've lasted nicely. They're a good all-purpose dance shoe, and I wear them pretty much exclusively for dance classes and informal...
