In the dance world all eyes are normally on those glamorous couples
who win competitions under the spotlight. But in real life
dancing is about dealing with other people (your partner),
overcoming your physical weaknesses, dealing with financial problems, coping with
long-distance commuting and all sorts of other obstructions on your way.
In this column we will be publishing real stories from real people.
We are not too interested in what you achieved.
We want to know how you achieved that and was/is your price to pay.
We want to know your Blood, Sweat and Tears story, because life is
not really all about glamour...

We can't guarantee that all stories will be published here, but each
one will be read and given a thorough attention.
