Runnybeak, in a quiz a couple of weeks ago the contestant was asked to name a country with a coastline in the Northern hemisphere, the answer was South Africa????
Obilixx, yes practice makes perfect, my Daughter and Dave dance every week I have watched they are very competent and ahead of most of the other dancers. She is her own worst critic saying her steps posture and musicality are OK but why can she not glide as smoothly as Mum and I did. I tell her she is good though realise that very early training both Joan and I had plus the constant dancing meant we did not have to think about what we did, with a correct posture you sense exactly what your partner will do, this is of course in free dancing, I never really took to all doing the same dancing. Doing the Tango and Rumba with the local ballroom Queen at 16-17 which nearly always meant the floor opened up for us gave me a confidence that meant I could waltz in Vienna on an empty floor and carry it off. I still think early training gives an edge. Pity I cannot still do it.
Where have you been David?
