Then you gotta stay here. (re-no-hate mail policy) Well put. To some it is about showing their ability, and to some it is about exercise. I've heard many say they do dance for exercise. To these not doing all these things means that they lose the reason why they do it. If you don't know much about dance it is easy to be tricked into thinking that is what you are there for...It is hard to find people out there who know how to do salsa technically and yet don't go all out. For those of us who dance the way you suggest perhaps we should be careful how we dance. When I dance as I'm talking about here...simply...elegantly all the followers come to me and say you are so restful, they even search me out after being spun all over the place, and say they just want to enjoy and the music and dance. When I trick them they often say oh...you know a lot etc etc...But if are connected...? Then it does not matter what we do...so my comments are about the unconnected dances.
