    You and me both! If we ever meet at a dance, that's what we're doing. :cool:

    I went through 3 teachers in the first two years of dance lessons at a franchise-like studio. But moving on was inevitable. It may work for you, Rodrk352, but I'm past the point where I can tolerate a teacher not knowing cold what they are supposed to be teaching me.

    I love bolero, but the way I like to dance it, I can only dance with DW. ;)

    actually, Starlight Ballroom, which became Starlight Danceclub, which became Cheryl Burke Dance, was where I learned the bolero...

    With my first teacher's invaluable help dancing became my dancing now 4 months after he left. I was discouraged but the last 2 months I'm happy we both moved on. It's a relief to know your passion for dance is entirely yours and not your teacher's. It means you are a dancer in your own right. You are a dancer fullstop. Being a novice dancer or a social dancer doesn't make you less of a dancer.;-)

    couldn't agree with you more. we are our choices. we are our actions. we are what we make of ourselves.
