"For ballroom dancing, remember that your partners have their own distinctive styles also.
Cultivate flexibility. Be able to adapt your style to that of your partner. In doing so, you are not surrendering your individuality, but blending it with that of your partner."
Fred Astaire from The Fred Astaire Top Hat Dance Album, 1936
