:cheers: ............ :friend: ............ :argue: ............ :bkick: Its odd that dance forum does not have a thread dedicated to the thrills, spills and, yes, pills of a dance partnershp. It took me 6 years to find a dance partner (DP) - it seems harder to find a good fit than for a life partner. Of course, many partnerships start the other way round - marriage first and then developing a common interest. How did you meet your DP? How good a fit is it - physically, emotionally, financially or time-wise? Do you have issues with regards to paying for lessons? Fear of breaking up? Is your partner supportive on the floor or does he/she blame you for any errors? Do you work through challenges well or is it always a struggle? Looking for tips to find one? Or maybe you have several for social or practical reasons (one for each dance style?). Or maybe you have an issue with the coach treating the woman as an afterthougth? What about developing your partnershp? How do you get that magical look where the couple seem to be expressing a life-relationship through dance? Or maybe this issue is something you would rather not discuss here for fear of DP reading it!! Explaining, maybe, why there is no thread!
