Yeah. Over here in the Pacific Northwest (USA), we dance a lot tougher
than those wimpy versions I've seen elsewhere -- lots more contact and
injuries. Inter-set squabbles can make a footballer cry like a baby.
Well, okay, so it's actually not any tougher at all. We do have
instructors who could make a footballer cry like a baby if he's not
closing to third, even if they aren't much more than five feet tall
(that's ~152 cm for those of the metric persuasion).
Well, okay, so maybe not. But I wouldn't want to cross them. Wonderful
ladies that keep us honest.
