"I could not agree more, Jeffrey. That right level of confidence makes all the difference. I reckon it's not the confidence that nothing will go wrong, but the confidence, that no matter what does go wrong, you can handle it."
"While I would not say that a leader could lead ANY follower who did not know what you are doing, I do agree that it can sometimes be possible. A lot of it (from what I have found) depends on how much the follower will actually follow. I…"
"Indeed they do - but that means you also need to know their level. Based on how long you've been dancing for now, you probably can do this.
It reminds me of a tango (Argentinian) class i was at. The female teacher told me that I was now ready…"
"I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you are interested in this woman for more than her money. If not, I cannot offer you any advice that will prove effective for a lasting relationship. (If it is only her money that…"

"Thanks, Jeffrey, for taking the time to write such a comprehensive note. It's well articulated and very helpful. I will take your advice. I think the dance we will concentrate on improving next will be the nightclub two-step. Thanks again for…"
"Exactly what dances you begin with often depends on what's being taught when you're available. Look for nearby dance studios and find out what classes they're offering. If you ask the studio, they will surely be able to…"
"Thanks, Rob, for your insight. My wife and I have been social dancing for about a year now. So far, we have tackled the foxtrot, the single-time swing (jitterbug?), the waltz, the hustle and the salsa. I wouldn't be so rash as to say we have…"
"Thanks, Leonardo. It is difficult here in Ohio to find venues that feature Latin music. In any event, the tango does look as if it would be difficult to learn, so good luck if you decide to keep at it.
It was interesting hearing from someone in…"
"Depends what kinda thing you're after - I would probably recommend Waltz and Jive. Girls love a good waltz, the slowness and the closeness of it (at least if you're dancing it romantically, rather than competitively). The jive is a good…"
"I live in Brazil, so I wouldn't recommend you the same dances we dance here.
Two nice dances that you can find anywhere are salsa and bolero. Tango looks nice, but I just had two tango classes and it does look hard to learn (I started dancing…"

"I would like to also vote for Theodore Roosevelt. Who else packed as much adventure and life into 60 years on this Earth? He was a cowboy, statesman, businessman, Ass. Sec. of the Navy, NYPD Commish, Army Colonel, and President. In addition to all…"
"I carry a single serving tube of Fogers dark roast coffee in the coin pocket of my jeans.I don't have to make my own coffee on the fly often, but if I get stuck somewhere and have to pull an all nighter, it comes in handy. Also, an old military…"
