been taking private lessons for one week, had a fair amount of one on one practice with their salsa experts, and today my intstructor threw at me the samba, cha-cha, and rumba steps. i picked up the basics, she complimented my natural leading technique, and told me i was a talented dancer. it was great to hear, and then she said I would probably really enjoy competing and that there was an upcoming competition (december 4th?) that she'd like to see me in. What?! I feel like very new to this, I've had 4 private lessons total, a few group classes, and have been dancing every day a lot in my own time and I really really enjoy it (see my other thread for learning blog) but I just don't know what to think about her competition idea. She said I'm months ahead of where I *should* be and complimented my practicing and seemed pretty serious. What do ya'll think?
