Dancing Is a Feeling
(Posted On: 12-01-2015)
Dancing is not something you do like an aerobic exercise or learn to do in a day or two. It is a skill like golf or any other hobby or playing an instrument. It takes a lot of time and effort to learn to dance, but once you have captured the skill, you will want to do it all the time. You have to put in the work constantly. Practice and practice and when you are done... then some more practice.
You have to feel your partners every move. If not injuries will occur and we don't like injuries do we? You and your partner move as one. Move in time with the music. Depending on the music, you will do peak dance steps when the music peaks and the other way around.
Resistance is accomplished by moving in the opposite direction as your partner, in all directions. Women follow by resistance and feeling where the man wants her to go. Remember that the man must place is foot first and then the lady a split second after, that is to make sure you don't get stepped on. When the lady move forward the same rule applies. The man in turn physically put the ladies feet where he want her to step in every action he takes while he is busy leading, Remember to accentuate your leading to ensure you learn, you can always adjust your leading at a later stage. The lady only moves after she receives a signal to move into a certain direction. If she does not and start running away, we call it leading the man. Even if he makes a mistake, make that mistake with him, it will look better than you two fighting on the dance floor. The biggest screw up, the mother of all is anticipation, the father of screw up's in dancing is assumption.
A man has got an ego, pulling and leading him around the dance floor will not be an ego boost and if that ego gets hurt it will be difficult to get him back on the dance floor, and he will never learn if the lady don't give him a chance to learn. It is better to drive your own Ferrari than to be driven it. She must be a little stubborn and make him do the work. A man learns by doing, whether it is fixing a computer, car, lawn mower etc. Another words the man's big skill is leading, while the lady's big skill is following.
