The difference being, dear, that you haven't spent the past almost four years Jones-ing for three separate dance teachers. Maybe you don't need the distance. Like DL, I went back and read all of the OP's posts from the very first one. There have now been three dance teacher crushes. Only one was acted on and reciprocated, but there have been three dance teacher crushes in a row. What I'm suggesting is scenarios that involve less one on one intensity. Maybe I'm off base. I'm just throwing ideas out there. The other thing I'd like to point out is that dance scenes, unless they're huge, are more connected than one might think. Just like a dance teacher can develop a reputation, so can a student. Dance pros talk to each other, just like everybody else. Not gossip. Just watching each other's backs.
