I learned my first dancing dip. God it’s awesome. It’s infinitely smoother and sexier when the teacher demonstrates it (either leading or following), but it still feels damn slick.
My pet peeve though? Spinning. I absolutely hate when I have to spin, because I get quite disoriented. I have a much greater appreciation for the followers now, and especially for modern jive followers, since just about every move ends in one or two spins. Thankfully, as the leader, we don’t spin unless I say we spin, and you know what? Maybe I’ll make you spin while I do something equally awesome that doesn’t leave me pointed in the wrong direction two feet away from where I should be.
