I Swing Both Ways

Posted in Dance, General at 9:09 pm by Ian

I just got back from my first dance class as a follow. It was awesome.

I got three strange looks, and one guy who wouldn’t dance with me, but everyone else was cool. I was even complemented on my following a few times.

It was an intermediate class, and lots of people take it several times, so there was a large range of skill in the dancers there. Jonathan was moving through some of the steps pretty fast (we’ll revisit them later), and at one point reeled off a combination of all the new steps we had covered that night for us to dance. I got a big grin on my face and turned to my partner and said: “Wow. I don’t have to remember any of that.”

    Nice being a follow isn’t it? It’s so hard having to think when I’m leading! Where are you taking lessons? We’ll have to dance sometime, you can help me learn to lead better!

    I still don’t know the names of half the moves I know. Hurrah for following!
