Dear all, I live and work in London, and have been dancing Lindy Hop for 10 months (haven't danced before). I really enjoy dancing to slow-medium tempo numbers like 'Lindy Hop Heaven' that I love with a partner I 'connect' with. I find there is also a lot of music played that I don't feel inspired to dance to, and in general, I think I worry too much about moves to have fun. So I probably spend more time NOT having fun at dances than having fun. I've been thinking about this, and watching other people (particularly male leaders like me). I've observed a few men in London who usually have fun when dancing. They are not the best dancers, and don't use the most impressive moves. What I've worked out is that these men seem to do fairly simple moves - I think it's mainly 8-count, with a lot of kicks and skips and relatively few triple-steps, lindy turns and charlestons. And they are never short of women to dance with. I want to work out some simple moves of my own (in fact I might ask some of these guys to teach me some of theirs'). Does anyone have any advice on simple 8-count moves or where to find them?
