Why do you think you are not good at demonstration dancing? Is it
because your image of the Dem. is great technique and poise that one
sees at St A. or do you not like standing up in public and showing
viewers what you enjoy doing?
I am interested in what dancers feel is necessary to be a Dem.
dancer. Many of the local Dem. teams one can describe as competent
without being unkind or causing offence. They just enjoy dancing so
much they want others to see what fun they have. I have seen very
few with high technique or superb footwork and most do not aspire to
such but they will demonstrate to the Seniors in the local Hospice
with great good will and humour any time they are asked.
So, friends, the question is:-
_ Why do you Demonstrate - or not?_
Cheers, Ron :)
