Strange thread title, right? Well, let me catch you up. So I have this thing, my "trademark" if you will, where I always bow to my follow after a dance. It's my way of thanking her for the dance. If I'm wearing a hat, I remove it as well. Anyway, I was at the weekly "official" swing dance from my scene, and I asked a lady to dance whom I don't see often. I think I may have danced with her once before. Anyway, as soon as we got on the dance floor, she said, "Don't bow." I was a bit taken aback, so I asked her why not, and she said "because it's weird." Before I could respond, she said, "I'm pretty sure all the follows talk about it. We all talk about it to each other. Stop doing it." In slight shock, I just kept dancing with her and didn't say a word to her for the rest of the dance, simply wondering what the problem was. "It's weird?" Is that a bad thing? Does it just make her (and apparently all the other follows) feel uncomfortable or what? It's something I've been doing pretty much ever since I started dancing, and I've never heard any complaints. But apparently they all complain about it to each other behind my back. At least I appreciate that someone was finally honest about it to me. Anyway, now I'm just overanalyzing it. So here's a question to all of you follows: Have you ever been bowed to by a lead at the end of a dance? If so, did it make you feel uncomfortable? Why or why not?
