1. Do you dance Latin, Ballroom or both? Both International Standard and Latin 2. Do you compete? If yes, in what level and category? Yes, Bronze Standard and Latin 3. Which is your favourite dance in Ballroom? Toss-up between Quickstep and Tango. They're too radically different to really compare. Quickstep never fails to cheer me up, while the intensity of Tango very much matches my personality. 4. Which is your favourite dance in Latin? Paso! It makes me feel totally BA. 5. Which is your weakest dance? Definitely Samba 6. What brand and model is your ballroom/latin shoe? SupaDance something-or-other standard shoes 7. Who is your favourite dancer (idol/inspiration)? Good question, I'm not too familiar with any of the pros, and usually take inspiration from the champ and pre-champ dancers from my college. 8. For how many years have you been dancing Latin/Ballroom? 6 months, and loving it! 9. Why did you start dancing Latin/Ballroom? I all but wrote an essay on this subject in a different thread. Suffice to say I love music and wanted to be able to do something with myself besides sway and sing along. And ballroom seemed an incredibly classy way to do that. 10. What is your best asset when comes to dancing Latin/Ballroom and what is your biggest problem that you are working with? My biggest asset, surprisingly enough, is my experience with marching band and Drum Corps. As a musician, staying on beat while dancing is as natural as breathing. And marching actually translates absurdly well to many ballroom concepts, especially posture, frame, and CBM/CBMP. And Drum Corps taught me how to learn quickly, and better yet, adapt quickly to changes in the routine while still performing. My biggest problem in Standard is that I tend to tense up my upper body a lot, which tends to drag my partner into me. In Latin, my problem is straight legs. Especially because my knees are actually incapable of fully straightening.
