    Thank you, thank you, for putting my thoughts into words so well! I think I feebly tried to express this earlier (this thread? another thread? Doesn't matter.)

    hehehe! How funny!

    I think an extension of our thoughts here is that people who dance/"shine" really well make it look like they are completely organic -without any training behind it. Really, how likely is that to be the actual case? :)

    where i dance salsa i am like the shine lady, i constantly get ppl coming up to me like

    "you know that shine you did earlier....can u teach me that?"

    unfortunately most of the time i dont remember what i did earlier because i was just doing what the music told me to do, but i do give them some advice, this is what got me fluent in shines.

    Learn a few long shines, where a couple of shines are threaded together. so you know like maybe 3 or 4 mini routines, practice these non stop. if im not dancing with a guy, im doing shines on my own in the club. when i first started i did the set shines over and over, shine 1,2,3,4 and repeat. even though i knew the shines i usually couldnt do it when it came to dancing with the guy cos he was doing all this fancy stuff and all i could do was a suzie q. then one day i knew the shines so well that they just came out without me thinking and the guy stopped dancing he was like :shock: then i still kept doing my shines maybe replacing one with a new one and then one day when i went to do a shine, my own shine came out....a different combination of the moves i knew so well!! and eventually shines just became something as easy as a CBL..

    well thats my 2cents :D
