Having heard a recent gossip about the top professional standard couple who almost broke up due to a partner’s misbehavior, I wonder about this. Do you have respect for your coach(es) as a person? I mean, I bet all of your coaches and teachers are wonderful dancers. But are they respectable humans? Is there anything else except dancing that you learn from them? Is there anything else that you find wonderful about them? Or does it not matter to you as long as they can teach you to be a better dancer? I have had five private teachers so far, and I found all of them wonderful except one. The one teacher was my fist private teacher, and I stopped taking lessons with him long before I found out his problems. If I had known his problems, I would not like to keep taking lessons with him, though, I think. But the other teachers are not only wonderful dancers/teachers, but I also find there are other things to learn from them and I have very high regard for them. I think even if I had not met them through dancing, I would be very happy to have them as my friends.
