    This is Cheshunt, yes? I know it's wrong & contrary, but it sounds so wonderfully dreadful, I'm really tempted to go tonight to see it in all its glory for myself!

    For sure Andy - thats why i stated "you can lead or follow" There are some men out there that i would personally choose to lead over some ladies.
    We always competed in Ceroc X style categories at champs and have always made the final - I lead and Paul Follows

    I'd love to come too. However, I run my own class on a Tuesday and a Thursday when the Cheshunt class is running.

    I notice that there's also two Fridays a month in Harlow run by the same people. Fancy a Funky Forum Friday? We could all agree on a particular Friday, agree on a dress code, all arrive at the same time and ...

    .. I'm not sure there are any other reasons, but we could, just possibly, dance all night.

    Now, what to wear? I do like nautical and have plenty of sailors outfits. I'm never wearing bondage again after I snapped my hamstring Medical sounds like fun. Sportswear is easy - bagsy GD. Or perhaps something really subtle and clever ...

    .. someone else will have to think of that.

    It's one hour 40 mins away from Brighton. Probably longer on a Friday. Still, it would be worth it just to be led by Double Trouble

    Oh please do all come. Next Tuesday they have their *Birthday Party. It's floaty dresses and smart dress so Andy, you could wear that floaty pink number I know you love so much.

    *Hurry and get your ticket...there's only 462 tickets left.

    I stuck with it and found some venues better than other - so please stick with it and dont give in to the miserable gits - you've paid your money so you can lead or follow

    Where do you go that is more welcoming for female leads? JayJay and myself are considering entering the Roc Vets section at next year’s Champs but I really need to brush up on my intermediate leading.

    Alternatively could always join DT on Thursday and Pee them off more

    I learnt to Dance in Kent and at the time i danced at Shorne and Park Langley which is where i also started to lead. Once they got used to seeing me in the line up all was good. The teacher even used to ask me to help out if there we loads of ladies over

    Re: Stop calling me a man!

    It is very sad, but I have never danced at a venue outside London (except Bognor weekends). But in all my time I have never known a class that had less than 5 or 6 ladies leading or that could lead at any given time. To my mind it is a very common site. Never heard a negative thing said. Hard to understand why there is still so much hostility.

    I won't mind what you do if you're wearing something sparkly and porn-star shoes. Do you mind if I back-lead a bit?

    Re: Stop calling me a man!

    I can just imagine the look on their faces. 5-6 guys in the line as ladies and 5-6 women as leads. You'll drive them all to drink you know. I imagine barring orders will be rapidly enforced.

    Is Shorne the Inn on the Lake?

    Or I could go to Romford on a Wednesday where I used to Taxi, Karen and Glen were always happy to have me lead, might give both a go over the next few months

    We go to Romford quite regularly - I doubt Karen will be around much as her baby is due in 3 weeks and 4 days but they always need more guys there
    Shorne is indeed the Inn on the Lake

    That would be great

    I should warn you that the standard in that competition is incredibly high

    Re: Stop calling me a man!

    So, it was week 4 of my leading journey tonight. I thought at one point the demonstrator was going to have a nervous breakdown. Men and women kept turning up and joining in the beginners lesson so every rotation there seemed to be either men over, women over, or both! I got the blame of course....

    Bloke "Of course you do realise this is all your fault, insisting on being a man"
    Me "I've paid my money, I'll lead if I want"
    Bloke "You don't even look like a man"
    Me "I've got more balls than you, Love"

    There was a new face at Cheshunt tonight. A mysterious lady who made me feel like I might actually be able to get the hang of this leading lark. Thanks for all the dances Lou...lovely to meet you and I hope you can make it to Cheshunt again (I need the practice)

  24. Thanks:
