I've been dancing seriously for about a year now and feel like I'm just emerging from Beginner Hell into Intermediate Hell. I'm definitely not a natural and will never be a great dancer, but I lead passably well everyone in my scene except the two people I want to dance with the most: my wife and my best friend. My wife and I started taking classes together. We've always done well with other people but are constantly in each other's way when we dance together. The frustration has sent her home for the duration. My best friend is an awesome, amazing dancer already. But I stink to holy hell if I ever try to lead her. I'm having a lot of fun at dances, except I can never dance with her. Thinking about giving up. Why expend the time and resources on dancing if I can't do it with the people I actually want to? Advice?
