    well, wouldn't be good if this is normal.
    dancing is about having a relationship on the dancefloor, this guy obviously did not understand that.

    I danced with a guy a while ago, who obviously wanted me to be a tornado. I was a newbie follow (still am :d) And he wasnt dancing any dance id ever heard of before. I dont have a problem with that if the guy has any patience, and this was a simple rythem so I was doing fine. At first. Once the guy realized Id gotten his style of dance down, He fully grabbed my hand by the wrist (not that nice genlte way some leads do) and proceeded to plant himself and spin me in a circle around him for the rest of the dance. When he was done, he said "you spin fast, that was awesome". I said thanks and collapsed out of breath on the floor near my friends. They gave me water and sympathizing looks. I vote him to be in the contest too!

    Oh heck. You know, I wonder how many leaders blithely go about doing obnoxious things on the dancefloor because followers just never tell them.

    Last night i was dancing LH with a guy who was throwing me around, and After a couple of swingouts, I said "I cant do that Im sorry, Im going to fall down" He shrugged, and grabbed another ther partner.
    I have completely crashed before whilst dancing, and Im not going to risk it again.

    I danced with a salsera the other day. She has been dancing for a while but for some reason has never taken classes. Anyway, the other day she grasped my hands during the dance as if she was falling from a 10 story building. :roll: This really bothered me. I have told her time and again not to do that but she never learns... I never ask her to dance anymore, unfortunately she is always asking me. :shock:

    Funny you should mention it... a follower that I see every now and then, and she is a trained instructor, is an incredibly physical follower. She will "take off" unless physically restrained by the leader. The first time I did an East Coast Swing with her, she rocked back so hard into my right arm that she spun me around the opposite way! I'm pretty strong, so now that the initial shock has worn off, I can dance with her and I do actually enjoy her dancing. However, it causes me to pick up bad habits. After a dance with her, I have to be careful not to "muscle up" on other partners.
