Don't look at us, the only dancing I like is in a GO Go bar.

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.

wow, you don't pull any punches guys !!! Interesting........lol

Primo: I'm also a foreigner

Secondo: I never said that I'm good at dance !

Tertio: agree with you : "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".

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

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
