I'm trying to figure out this thread... it seems to be in multiple directions. As far as triple step swing.. that is the swing I learnt right away, it was not hard to pick up, and I have no idea what the other swing alternative is. In reference to music, yes, I do agree that having a variety of music, both the traditional and the new might appeal more to everyone and I think across this forums there are many sites where various music is listed from a variety of sources. I agree that it can be really cool to discover that a song you thought of one way, can be danced as a chacha or a waltz, etc, etc. From what I gather from your situation Edwin, it sounds like you want to do some ballroom dancing to more modern songs.. so I would suggest you take the classes, and start going to ballroom socials, because you probably won't convince anyone at a traditional nightclub with no ballroom training that this Lady Gaga song can be done on the spot as a chacha. There are some studios that have a younger population than others, so you might find all that you need in that scenario. Invite your friends to the lessons and socials, show your gender how much fun ballroom can be and how you can still dance to current favorites. You can be the one to make the changes that you seek! I am not in favor of your wording but I like your enthusiasm.
