A friend and I had our first Line Dancing class yesterday. I couldn’t hear a word of the instructions even though the instructor had one of those headset microphones, a stick that wound around her other ear and pointed outwards and a small square box on the back of her waist.
I think the other people could hear her natural voice. There was no sensation of amplified hearing through a microphone.
When I asked, the instructor said she could not amplify her voice too much because it interfered with the music output volume. The music became too loud.
What on earth can I do?* Yesterday I followed the steps by instinct and didn’t let myself think. Maybe I better go and practise while you’re asleep and hope that the home of Line Dancing can solve this.
* I could use hearing equipment but shouldn’t need it. Hearing-aids pick up microphones!
