Do you use pre-leads in leading (or, do people use them with you if you are following) for inside and/or outside underarm turns? Although I use them, I get the impression that a lot of people don't. Just for frame of reference I dance two-step basic pattern as: (1) quick (2) quick (3) slow (5) slow all forward steps with the feet passing on each step. Outside turn for lady: I pre-lead the lady on 5 (the 2nd slow) by bringing my left hand a little bit back before leading her to turn. Inside turn for lady: I pre-lead the lady on 3 (the 1st slow) by extending my left hand a little bit forward and to the side before leading her to turn. So how about you? Do you use pre-leads like these?
