Venus shrugged. She knew that having 5 Milano's and 4 Landi's in the school meant that they got paired up together a lot. "Not much you can do about the fact that there's so many of us Professor. Just thought I'd mention it just in case we have trouble dancing so close."

As the professor told them to get into position, she turned to Leone and held her arms out. "Ready?"

To say Cam would have been overjoyed to have the professor toss him out of her class at this point would be an understatement, and that apology she would require to get back in she would have to keep waiting for because Walkers didn't apologize. Elisa said she didn't know how to dance and Cam bit back a sigh and somehow managed to not roll his eyes, something he deserved a gold star for in his opinion. "Yup." He replied, popping the p for emphasis. Cam did roll his eyes at the professor before pushing himself off the wall and assuming the proper dance stance. He looked at Elisa blankly waiting for her to get into position properly.

It was hard to not freak out over the lack of your skills when your partner can't seem to get off his high hippogriff.Assuming they won't do the Argentine tango because god help her if they do, Elisa sighed softly before stepping closer to the boy and copying the professor's hand placement, one hand on his lower hip. Lisa looked around with pure confusion written on her face as she had no idea what to do with the other hand. It was as awkward as it can get but she had no option but to oblige. Maybe doing this with Giorgio could have been much easier than with a boy she's never spoken with.

Camdyn watched the girl approach him with a blank stare, good lord this was going to be painful. All he could do at this point was try to make the best of it, he could have his hissyfit later when it wouldn't make things worse. Somehow he managed not to eye roll as she tried to position herself, the boy deserved a goddamn gold star for it too. "Jesus Christ." He muttered under his breath not caring if she heard. Taking her hand he placed it properly and firmly on his hip down low before positioning her in the crook of his arm so their hips touched, because it wasn't like she had any tits that their chests would touch. "Are you even going to be able to lead?" He asked, not caring if he sounded one bit condescending.

Hearing Mr. Walker’s comment as she walked past him and Miss. Milano, she snapped at him: ”Mister Walker I suggest you keep your opinion to yourself. This is not an advanced class. If you cannot stand anyone not being at your oh so superior level...or whatever you believe you are any good at...which there is still no proof of, I am going to ask you to leave...Stay focussed.” She tried to give the girl an encouraging smile but all she wanted right now was to rip the boy’s head off. She started walking around again, correcting a position here and there and then sighed. Starting the music, she then said: ”All you need to remember is to move using this pattern: slow, slow, quick, quick, slow. Listen to the rhythms of tango music and embrace your partner. Hold your head high and confidently dance in a counter clockwise circle.Remember ladies, let the guys lead you.” She grabbed one of the male students to demonstrate again guiding him into what she was expecting to see from him and everyone else and then asked them to proceed as she would walk around and see if she needed lots of modifications to their dancing or not.

Camdyn was trying his best to keep his cool but this class had to be a joke, honestly. Then the professor felt the need to be haughty with him and he just rolled his eyes at her, clearly she didn't have a brain. "Professor if you offered an advanced class clearly I'd be taking it instead." He told her dropping his position with whatsherface. Cam had enough of this crap and the professor's holier than thou attitude, it was a wonder the woman could catch a man but then many could argue her fiance really wasn't a catch. Cam still wasn't sure how the man had ended up a professor here, probably just shook his hair at the headmistress and she let him teach. He grabbed his stuff and headed to the door. "Honestly Professor it's quite clear I'm superior to even you when it comes to dance. So there's no reason for me to be here wasting both our time, I'll go make better use of my time." Cam flipped her the bird and walked out the door, no intention of ever coming back to this class again.

Kate was nervous and annoyed at the same time. She would surely have a talk with Aunt Delilah about this. Oh darn, why she had to plead me so much for taking a dance class?! - she thought and tried her best to concentrate on what the pretty professor told them.
It seemed she would be paired up with a Thunderchirp guy for the whole term. Thank goodness, he seemed to be a nice one. She tried her best to get into the right position, however she felt way too pokerish and uncomfortable, and instead of dancing, she could only stumble here and there, trying not to trample on her partner's feet all the time.
They hardly began to 'dance' when another, so high and mighty Wampus boy left the room, making a rude gesture to the professor, leaving his poor Puker partner alone. Katie even stopped to move, and watched the boy leaving, mouth agape. Sometimes she was a rebel, but she couldn't imagine to be that rude to a professor...

Moni’s face was void of any emotions. The nerves of that brat! If she didn’t have as much self control as she had left, she would have hexed him. ”Clearly you are not one to be able to adapt to any situation, Mr. Walker. ”, she said calmly. Upon seeing the boy pick his things up and hearing his commen, the whole thing didn't even surprise Moni. That brat clearly was full of himself. Her class would definitely be better without him to make comments about the way she ran it. Turning her attention back to the remaining students, she hissed now beginning to feel humiliated : ”Is anyone else unhappy with my teaching methods? Perhaps you already know all there is to dancing? Maybe you could get Mr Walker to teach you all he claims he knows about dancing? Anyone else wants to share their thoughts ABOUT ANYTHING? OR ARE YOU ACTUALLY HERE BECAUSE YOU WANT TO LEARN TO DANCE? DON’T LET THE DOOR HIT YOU ON THE WAY OUT...” She had tried her best to remain calm, but what just happened had really pissed her off. She would go to his Head of House to discuss the boy’s nasty behaviour. Showing disrespect to a Professor was not something she would tolerate and she did not want to fuel the abhorrence she felt from the boy towards her and resppect was a two way thing. She would not respect anyone who didn’t show her respect in return.

Ryker had no idea what was going on but it was clear that the professor seemed to be mad. He had no problem with the professor's teaching style as he didn't know how to dance that well. The thing was that he didn't have a partner and everybody seemed to be paired with someone. He just stayed with his back up against the wall. He scanned the other students to see if the other students needed a partner to do the Argentine tango.

Venus yawned at the little kitten trying to show his claws. He had miles to go before he'd be anything more than a nuisance. But hey, hopefully he'd lose their house some points. Venus's main goal while at school was to pass classes but end the year with 0 or negative points (if possible) for Wampus. Why would he need Elisa to lead anyways? Every time Venus had seen ballroom dancing in Muggle movies, it was always the guy who led. At least since they were in class, the teacher had to deal with him, not her. Being Head Girl sucked cause she was supposed to be responsible.

Leone had lost himself in panic. If there's a cooking class, he will be taking it instead of dancing. He doesn't even know the first thing about dancing formal dances like this. Tango?! Who dances tango anyway? Does anyone dance tango in clubs? Definitely not. Venus, I know you want a high grade in this class and all, but we are going to fail. He said blatantly, not knowing if Venus really wanted to pass the class or not. But he's definite he will screw this class up.

The rest of the class seemed to go fairly well, Students seemed like they wanted to be there even if it was not necessarely their first choice. Keeping calm as the music was playing, once she had corected a few positions and taught them a few steps, she watched them go and tried to stay positive about it all. Clapping her hands to signal time was up, she called out: "That will be all for today. Hope to see you all next class...Thank you." She reached for her water bottle and stopped the music waiting for them all to leave to go calm down with a nice cup of tea in her office and wonder what just happened.
