“The Obnoxious Dancer” by Alain Buzzard reprinted from the January 2002 issue of Times Squared

Good words from our own “Bossy Betty”.

Having been nominated for the “Bossy Betty Award” for several years running, the following words of encouragement from A Ceder Chest of C-3 Square Dance Definitions by Vic and Debbie Ceder apply to me as well as a few other Times Squares members, both in classes and at dances:

Being a good dancer has nothing to do with level. It has more to do with being a good team member. Dance your part and allow the others to dance their part. A truly good dancer will wait until the last moment … before offering help if necessary. Please don’t be the obnoxious dancer who must help every other dancer in the square whether or not they need it.

The truly important things are the ones we learn after we know it all.

-Yellow Rocks,
