I thought it may be useful to new dancers if we compiled a list of poor, useless or potentially harmful dancing advice. Perhaps we could even include suggestions that may only be useful when properly explained in practical terms like "stay grounded". 1. Followers dance tango on our toes. Not just with our weight forward but on the toes. This isn't ballet. Moving quickly may sometimes necessitate staying on the balls of the feet (like sprinting) but dancing on tip toe is unnecessary. 2. Use the palms to exert significant pressure on one's partner in the embrace. Nope. Hugs shouldn't hurt.
