    Dresses for Rent and Sale - size 6-10

    I'm dropping the asking price for black & white standard to $1000. I will be at St. Louis Starball next week, so if someone wants to try it on there, please pm me and I will bring it with me. Here's a list of all dresses that I currently have: black/yellow fringe latin, black/coral smooth...

    I wonder if this "every man for himself" mentality is more prevalent in US, period. Which kinda makes it a lot more difficult to build a team.

    And the quality is usually better when it's tailored to individual needs.

    I think that pretty much describes a typical situation.

    Amateur Couples in America

    As someone who's been doing pro-am for a long time, I get to practice by myself a lot. I don't think I need to go to a partnerless group class just for the sake of dancing by myself. I'd go there if I felt I could get something useful out of it. And then again, since I don't spend just money...

    That presumes you have a compatible partner. But even so, I think even a couple would learn better in a private lesson where the focus is on them and their problems.

    Feeling guilty

    If you listened to my mom and some other relatives/acquaintances, you'd think I'm committing a capital offense by staying single and not attempting to start another family while I am still biologically capable of doing so.

    Short Hair in Standard/Smooth

    Anyhow, this is how I've been doing my hair since I cut it shorter. And I don't mind it looking like that per se, I'm just aware that it looks considerably different from what everyone else is doing, and I wonder if it makes me stand out in a good way or a bad way, if I should just grow it back...

    Short Hair in Standard/Smooth

    That's for rhythm/latin maybe, but for standard? And mine isn't so short that it can be spikey.

    Short Hair in Standard/Smooth

    I'm resurrecting this since I feel like it's getting to be a sort of personal dilemma for me. I used to have a bob cut of varying lengths for most of the last 30 years of my life. About a year ago I got a cut which is more like a layered pixie, and it looks better on me on a daily basis...
