    Glenn Weiss running for USA Dance President

    And how much of the dues is spent on dancesport issues, like the never ending and never happening Olympics bids?

    Glenn Weiss running for USA Dance President

    So social gets a VP, but the dancesport VP can't handle dancesport? Okey doke. But that's not the point that I believe Snapdancer was making. It was the not-so-veiled insult that only competitive dancers are REAL dancers. Sure. Dancesport members pay more for membership. They also get...

    Help I can only seem to dance with my Teacher

    Well unfortunately if you want to get good at social dancing, you'll have to social dance, and you'll probably suck at it for a while until you're good at it. But put a little work in and you'll be enjoying it in no time. It's just like anything else you have to learn. There's a learning period.

Sorry, but a bad dance instructor doesn't seem worth getting this up in arms over. I mean even if this teacher is a horrendous vinegar or whatever kind...

    Teaching in a social dance course

    I think if the teacher can do it WHILE people are moving or WHILE showing things, then it helps everyone get what they want, whatever kind of learner they may be. But I'd agree, if I spend a bunch of the class standing while the teacher is yakking (especially if I'm taking the class as a follow...

    Sprucing up my Standard gown - sewing questions!

    If you have additional fabric in the blue, I agree to add a couple inches above the belt. I think that would elongate your torso.

    Statements that your coaches have made with which you have disagreed

    Does it really matter if you call someone a "coach" or a "teacher"? Unless you want to be snooty about it, with a, "Oh, I'm going to get coaching!!" because seeing a dance teacher is somehow beneath you, as if you no longer need to be taught anything, only "coached."
