I agree with this, I have kept dancing all these decades because of the
social aspect and no competition or grading. I don't think a teacher
needs to be a great/good dancer. It always used to be taught that if
you can't demo the step properly, get someone from the class that can,
and this works very well. If a teacher gets past being able to do the
steps are they supposed to give up teaching????
