Where did they get the name "Rudolph"?
While we are at it, what makes a good one?
erstwhile actor from the silent movies era.
Or so I'm given to understand.
I have often wondered about the origin, and have received several theories; all of which I will spare you the grimmacing of.
Re the execution, w/o going into grand detail, good one is well led by the man's interacting movement w/ the lady's right leg, and the subsequent rotation and lift of his right side. And, the taut and pointed resulting ronde by the lady. When danced poorly, it is most often one of/all of these elements gone awry.
What about the dance position? Does it change? When?
Watch and see...
I thought it was named after a ballet dancer. Perhaps nureyev
