"We can be miserable or we can motivate ourselves.
What ever has to be done, it is always our choice."
You can play a game in a classroom or party setting. It works best with less than 30 people. Line up everybody in a circle. Pick a starting player. The starting player comes up with a piece of harmless humorous gossip about somebody in the group, such as "I heard Bill sleep walks to Walmart at night." The starting player picks a player in the circle and whispers this gossip into their ear.
This person then whispers the gossip into the ear of the person to their right. This gossip circle continues until it gets to the last person in line. This person restates the gossip they heard, which will be drastically different than the initial gossip. You can use this game to illustrate how fast gossip travels, anywhere, not just in dancing circles and how different it can end up being. Fortunately, blogging results are much different than that. All opinions, right or wrong, are up front.
There is an increasing amount of dancers in the Studio groups and also in the Night club groups and mostly into the American Style of dance. And perhaps a little less looking down their noses at the clumsy dancers.That part of dancing in town is not perfect but certainly going in a better direction.
The outskirts are moving very nicely except for the always present problem of finding a place to dance. However they have developed their own versions of the di facto rulers of the clubs. Once we have a more democratically run dance club we will get more members. If not, there is a new club forming next month.
