More like you're looking for a human to dismember.

What you call "dancing" here, it is really figure dancing abroad, done by a few professionally, and not an every day event.  In fact, if you were in a party abroad, and started dancing that way, you will probably be laughed at by many not so polite attendants.

 

Dancing is the sensual movements of your body according to the musical notes you hear, nothing abrupt, no sudden movements, no plastic smile plastered on you.  

 

A local friend who claims to know dancing, asked me once to dance a Cha Cha Cha with her.  I got pretty good CD's so I selected one and we started.  Within 10 seconds I stopped dancing, and told her that is not the way to dance Cha Cha.  She claims to have won many competitions, and that she really knows how to dance.  I said, fine with me, but you do not dance Cha Cha at all, you perform a  "boxing or wrestling match" instead.  Then I danced a Cha Cha by myself like it is done everywhere, and she continued to say I had no idea how to dance Cha Cha.  So, I shut my mouth and "allowed" her to gain face with those friends present.  But there were foreigners present too, and they made comments like she was wrong and I was right.  And the evening turned into a fiasco.

 

So, it may be hard for you to find a foreigner to dance with if you are also into figure dancing.  If Carlos Gardell saw a Chinese dancing a tango, he would have quit singing.

Well...I just love dancing and looking for a reliable male partner to practice, and share lessons with while having fun.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
