    Waltz

    Where do you live in Texas? Perhaps I can help. I'm in Texas as well and been in the dance community for a long time. I might be able to tell you of studios that teach CW Waltz. Swirl

    Getting started in C&W Competition

    flexibility and fitness for ballroom dancers

    I have a very stiff lower back/right hip but want to increase the flexibility in my leg extensions. I'm sure if I can loosen up my back and hip, I will increase that flexibility. Will pilates help that? Will they work on leg flexibility? Swirl

    I am looking for Dance outfits!

    UCWDC Bulletin Board MMMM, somewhat friendly. I would suggest reading and observing first. Much of the UCWDC "politics" is discussed there and if you are not involved in it, it probably won't interest you. There are many many costumes on there right now though. It seems that I must make 15...

    Thoughts and motivations I have danced most of my life. I competed in Disco back in the “Saturday Night Fever” days and minored in modern dance in college. I hated CW music! After my divorce and becoming a single mom, I went dancing with friends and was introduced to CW music and dancing...
