I am trying out with 2 prospective partners as my old partnership just ended for personal reasons. One of the boy is of a higher level but I feel that we are dancing 'flat' even mechanical and for some reasons out bodies does not work very well together. It is a very hard thing to describe but we keep on bumping bodies feel like he is dancing with himself and the dancing feels 'cold' and mechanical. With the other boy however the chemistry is magical....our bodies just 'click' together and we move like a dream. We just smiled at each other everytime our eyes met as we enjoys the dancing very much. This boy however is not even close to the first one's in technical ability and rankings. I am amazed that even when the step is wrong it feels right and we just swirl and swirl around the floor. I mean technical ability can be learned right ? I never feels like that dancing with anyone else but would his technical ability impedes how well we do in competitions ? We will try dancing in a few competitions and see how it goes.... I am not closing the deal yet but touch wood this is the right partner for me.
