I can go and see a movie like "Dumb and Dumber" and laugh at the bodily fluid and slapstick humor. I can go and see a movie like "Napolean Dynamite" and laugh and think, and appreciate the subtlety. ECS is fun because it is simple, uncomplicated. It allows me to hold a pleasant converstaion with my partner. It shooting fish in a barrel, it doesn't cause me to grow, it doesn't challenge me. I can do it with anyone, whether they are even trying to follow me or not. Whether the music swings, sways, pulses, throbs, etc. Yes you can have fun with it. ECS is potato chips. Tasty, but in the long run empty calories. Lindy Hop is a balanced seven course meal. Think Merengue and Salsa Or even better think bronze tango versus gold. ECS is the easiest steps in lindy hop, simplified more. Literally.
