    Re: Teaching and guns

    Has anyone come across this kind of dancer?
    
    An Englishman and his wife have been dancing with us here for some years 
    now. When they first turned up, I never thought they would continue, they 
    just did not appear to be dancers.  But they have stayed, and little by 
    little, have learned the steps.
    
    When we do skipchange or strathspey round the room for little practise or 
    warm-up, this gentleman's steps are quite satisfactory (not quite Nureyev, 
    but just as good as I see on visits to GB), but in a dance, while he is 
    generally at the right place at the right time, there is no way I can get 
    him to do anything like a Scottish step !
    
    Should I be scolding him?
    Or be glad that he comes along regularly with enthusiasm and a friendly 
    smile?
