Carmen—our trainee from Chile—was with us for the first few months of classes. She was a big help to us and we wish her well.
This should go without saying but we’re saying it anyway–you should smell good for your dance partner and they should smell good for you.
It’s yucky when your dance partner does everything to avoid looking at you so don’t do it to them either–partner dancing is a partnership!
The more people you dance with, the more versatile you will be as a dancer. Adapting to different styles and movements is great for your mind and your body!
Connection is important in a follow-and-lead partnership so make sure yours is constant, but neither of you should need a chiropractor after class!
Partner dancing is a close-contact social experience. Make sure your sense of smell and that of your partner is pleasant.
