Things that Make my Blood Boil: Self proclaimed experts

12 februari, 2013 | Kommentera (0)

As a dance teacher I have worked most of my adult life with training dancers to become Professional, Pro- Am or Amateur.

As a dance school owner I have run my school to produce good social dancers.
Working as an entertainer I meet and give fun classes to thousands of social dancers around Sweden.
One of the things that irritates me the most is specialist IDIOTS! They go from dance hall, to dance hall ,telling people what they are doing wrong on the dance floor.

Most of these self proclaimed dance experts, dance 2 dance forms Swedish Bugg or a bastardised version of Foxtrot. The problem is that they are frightening people away from the dance floor.
They walk around trying to get people into competitive styling in a social enviroment.

My advice is:

  • Social dance on a social dance floor.
  • Compete at a competition.
  • Dance show dance in a show.
  • Be an artist where ever.
  • But please stop discussing with social dancers whats right or wrong.
  • He leads she follows.
  • They are on time with the music and they are having fun.
  • They dance their own style.


Whats wrong if they don’t want to do the Correct comepetitive style as is described by the Swedish Dance Sport federation?

Oh! and just as a point of interest, its not the teachers that are the problem. Its those that fall under the category ” A little knowledge is Dangerous.”

You know the ones I mean – They themselves have 2 left feet , bad timing and spend more time looking at the people in the bar to see who is watching them then they do their partner. But they go to classes in some sports club where they train in groups . Unfortunately they cant make it on a competition floor so they come to the social dancing floor to boost their egos.

They make my blood boil…
