Ok, I just returned from four days of dance workshops, and crowded dance floors at Kutsher's (Star Dust). We encountered many fine teachers, and generally, had a great time meeting wonderful dance-loving people, and dancing our feet off (zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz). My concern, is that in deciding which dance class to attend, we discovered, that one doesn't know which dance is being offered, 'cause the "name" of the dance is different in various parts of the world...iow, there should be a standard name for each dance. Ok, I realize that in Britain/International dancing, jive is a triple-step dance. But we went to a class that was called, "swing"...ok, it was east coast swing. Then, we went to a class that was Lindy, and it was basically a west coast, with a smooth-style but with a rock step (All the steps we learned there, could be copied in our west coast swing). I thought, Lindy, was short for Lindy Hop, but Dance Manhattan, says that they're different. ?????? I wish the world would come together and call a dance by one name. What do you think? Wouldn't that make it easier to make DanceSport an Olympic event in 2012?
