I started a new topic 'cause I didn't want to hijack the already existing one about double turns... So, my problem is this: by reading articles on various sites (especially Edie the Salsa Freak's website) I learned the woman should not rely on the man to do anything (except for aerials and the like). And that she should be able to do spins, turns and CBL all on her own! And since I saw her and other well-known follows do such things, I assume there is something one can learn, some technique, that would allow them to spin correctly. So far, I can doo double spins (on 567 - clockwise) and even 2 and 1/2 (also on 567 - clockwise), and I can do a CBL with double turns (on 567) and multiple turns... But I cannot do triple spins on 567 - clockwise nor double spins on 123 - counter clockwise. And I've been told that I should rely on the guy to do them and I should just let him spin me! I was :shock: ! I mean, I thought I was suppose to do them myself! What about guys then? I saw some leads do 3 or 4 spins! Come on! Who's leading them, as leaders??? So, my questions are: 1. Is the follow supposed to be able to do such things alone or not? 2. What is the proper underlying technique? And please don't tell me to buy tapes/CDs/DVDs and the like... I have Edie's Spins video and cannt watch it since it's NTSC coded and we use PAL/SECAM technology... as for the purchasing part, I can hardly afford to pay so much money for instructional tapes... given the low wages in Romania and the fact that I live alone and pay rent (among other stuff). So any explanation would be more than welcome! And I'll let you guys know how it went! Thanks!
