    I just saw on the news that the new "buy your mp3's legally" website has flaws. There is some sort of program or site that can take the encrypted mp3 files and duplicate them and take them for free WOOPEE! Guess there really is no stopping this so called "theft" of mp3's :lol:

    How do you make samba "bounce"?

    I've seen samba danced flowy and controlled and also danced bouncy and sharp. I like both styles but I dance the bouncy way. I think it's in the knees.

    Backleading and hijacking...

    it's generally not a good idea to pop blisters because bacteria can get in there and cause infections (especially on our dirty feet). I would say cover it with the right sized bandaid with antibiotic gel and/or nuskin and wait. :]

    How much does a dance teacher's personality matter?
