It’s very important to have the same mind set and goals but be logically about achievements. Similar experience is also helpful and a good sense of humour. You will need that as dancing is difficult as it is!

I like to be on the floor most of the time at a dance. Socializing is secondary. I am moderately experienced at most dances. I appreciate a good strong lead, and like to learn new styles, steps.

~~~ GOALS : if you're not on the same page, if both expect a different outcome, it can't work in the long run ~~~ DISTANCE : huge problem, for all levels of dancers no matter the dance form ~~~ CHARACTER-match : biggest problem for all of us ;)

Energetic and fun to dance with
♦ Distance
♦ Proficiency
♦ Goals
Distance is the priority followed by proficiency and shared goals. If you have to trek half across the uk, it’s just not sustainable. Other factors are important but if you can get the above 3 right, it’s a great starting point.

BOTH partners having fun dancing is the most important factor !
