I'm debating this one. I need to stop driving so much since I need to save some money. But that would mean dancing locally. Oy! The options are few
and not attractive at all. :?
can't you carpool to save expences?

Absolutely! We do that here to save cash(parking, gas AND road tolls are sky-high!) and also to have a designated driver. Parking is a hassle in the cities here so why take 4 cars when you can carpool?

I'm in the same situation except no dancing here that I'm aware of. Nearest dancing is 2 hours away; 3 1/2 hours for the better dancing.

awesome dance weekend...just have to share....first of all the best week of privates that I have had in 6-8 weeks...most of which have been hell since my first comp busy learning all new stuff for the next one...so friday I had a bolero class and before it was practicing and a great many people were watching and complimenting me...then at the group bolero lesson all of the men seemed so pleased and grateful to dance with me..like they had just smoked a fine cigar...and I do smooth and standard so I felt really good about how that went and how I held myself during that lesson...then had another awesome private (third in a row w/ my instructor on saturday/today) in spite of being kind of under the weather...practiced tonight in the garage and have a showcase tomorrow where we are just doing our comp routines for practice...very psyched :lol:

it also doesn't make sense to actually drive 4 cars. We're probably gonna ride down to switzerland together, (4 of our club), to save money, but also- it's way more fun going with friends together, than meeting them at the dance place. I did go alone to some workshops, and it was really boring. I'm really looking forward to this one though :D

I guess I could. There used to be only one venue here that did ballroom but there was no reason for me to dance there. (The skill level was -2. And no cute women. :wink:) So I got used to driving to LA. So I didn't know any dancers here. But recently a group that had focused exclusively on salsa is beginning to expand it's repetoire a bit. At least including hustle and West Coast Swing (neither of which I dance :lol: ). But I could check out their dances and maybe get to know some people.

:shock: Ouch! Even though there's not much here dancing is only an hour or so away. I've thought every once in a while about all the people who post on this forum who are in your situation. Wow! :? And I'm seriously thinking of moving closer to dancing.

Studio ballroom social tonight, but I think I'm going to forego the latin club afterward tonight, because it's been a long week and I'm tired. I might go to the club tomorrow night and do a bit of social dancing on Sunday too. It's kinda up in the air.

Made my first attempt to see what if any dancing was in my new locale last night. I drove to the casino just south of here that has a nightclub known as the Timbers. Before coming here I had been told that some WCS dancers go there, but didn't see any there last night. Just people doing very basic 2 step or an imitation; some swing, but not WCS. :(

Otherwise, the club is very nice and the band was quite good. 8)

Oh well, I'm driving to Phoenix later today for some WCS tonight and tomorrow night. :D

I went dancing yesterday night and had fun. Danced with mostly beginners, and the one regular - Ever since she mentioned to me that the one person who dances with her does not come to the dances much anymore. My guess? Her physique as she is a very large lady! :x Why I never danced with her before? Well...just never got down to it like others...Yesterday night a few told me that they have seen me dancing so I told them to ask me nect tiem!! Drives me crazy they don't ask when I tell them too! :evil: - ok getting off-topic here. Great night dancing. Claimed my spot near the open door and two fans. Never broke into a sweat while all those on the dance floor were melting away. :lol: 8)
