Merry Christmas

Stands to reason that we are going in the right direction for the coming year to establish the credentials of the Social or Cultural Dancer, which is our kind of social dancing. Most social dancers find their confidence in dancing. Right is just a inches away from wrong. Failure seems to be louder than success. But there is an accumulation of all the things we don’t do wrong, and it becomes our confidence.

"No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it to anyone else."
~ Charles Dickens

We can even get to the point where our confidence lasts longer than the dance. Seconds at first. Then minutes. Then maybe sometimes it will be there when we are walking into a social dance party or a night club. We know we have something desirable, and we know we can move to music. The night clubs are getting bigger crowds. If we are not dancing strictly for fun, we have a set of dance figures we have learned to do, exactly as we were instructed. It is just a few shades different.
