Collegiate dancers don't know syllabus. Collegiate dancers can't do lead and follow ("How do you beat a bronze standard dancer in collegiate? Cut him off and he has to go back to his corner and start over." Collegiate dancers don't know American style ("Your rhythm is international cha cha, no fan and hockey.") Collegiate dancers really don't know American style ("They can't find the 2 in mambo and they can't find anything else in rumba.") Collegiate dancers only care about Latin. Those are the stereotypes. I admit that I bought into them for too long and I was pleased to both see that I was wrong and to admit and apologize for my mistake. Oh sure, they hold true for some collegiate dancers but no more so than for the population of dancers in general.
