Once again I'm posting to the the group hoping to elicit MORE good advise. My last post brought forth a plethora of good tips for leading in small confined space--ie a packed dance floor! Many thanks! I have been trying, repeat trying, to get the leaders hook step/turn down, but it is driving me crazy! I started out learning the walk aroung version--hook your right foot behind your left, half turn, step on left, complete turn and step on right. But when I tried to advance to the actuall hook turn--hook the right foot, and then turn on 6 and 7--disaster! I'm always wild and out of control! I can't quite figure out what I'm doing wrong, but I think I'm wildly swinging my right foot way out to the side and this is throwing me off balance. Some foks have said to me, bend your knees and when you hook your right foot on "5," sort of kick it straight back and then around your left, and pivot on the right foot. Others are telling me some sort of pivot on the ball of your right foot and the heel of the left foot! Any advise and or practise techniques are desperately sought and gratefully acknowledged. Thanks!
