    Glad I'm not the only one that finds this easy. :D

    I'd give you a big hug if I could, and I'd save a kiss for your cheek. Unless of course we were seeing eachother. ;)

    Pacion, are you flirting with me? ;)

    Would you believe it if I told you "smack" meant kiss? I'm sure if you had known there wouldn't have been as many tickets purchased, at least not by you. :tongue: ;) :lol:

    Here's one for free anyway. :kissme:

    Interesting. Eye contact is one of the few things I've never had a problem with, and although most leaders (eventually :lol:) look back at me, there have been guys who seem determined not to look in my direction :roll:.

    My method: There are certain moves where the leader seems more likely to notice me :lol:, and when I'm led into these moves, I do my best to make sure he notices me (this is done through certain styling :wink:). When the leader notices it and looks at me, I give a huge big smile. If he smiles back, I consider the mission to be accomplished.

    When I dance with a beginner, I sometimes tell him to look up and look at me. I don't do this very often though.

    Re: mission

    If the follower has not lead before, you will be doing alot, alot..ALOT of basics...so don't worry...Im not asking you to get your instructor to lead/follow you, Im saying get someone who has never done it before, but wants to try it...The person who normally leads will find that they mostly have to do basics....just make it look good...and both will find out its much easier to follow...at least the basics...

    Re: mission

    Ayuh. And both usually come before dancin, although I have this one nephew ...

    Actually, I had a follower lead me yesterday in AT who had never been a lead before, so does this mean this weeks mission has already been accomplished? ;)

    Re: mission

    Perhaps we should go for quantity as well..see how many you can get to lead you/follow you, whatever is not the norm...

    DG report

    I focused on this for some dances, and didn’t have any problems. But keeping the eye contact through the entire song doesn’t feel natural for me, so I skipped that. But as I read, that wasn’t the point. Getting the connection, the eye contact and getting to know how you are going to dance with your partner is kind of natural know.



    I also use the peek-a-boo moves, where you lose the eye contact, then getting hopefully getting a smile or something when you catch her eyes.

    I cant get a good connection if she kind of ignores me while we dance. But its fortunately long time since this happened. This is not the same as the I know you are looking at me, so I will look a little away, so you can look at me game.

    My main problem might be concentrating on remembering the move I feel like doing sometimes make me fade out for a moment.

    Oooh! That's the first time a compliment by me has been taken like that by Pacion :shock: :wink: :lol:

    I'm not sure I should be careful, thankful, or both. ;) :lol:

    Maybe she has a soft appreciative side after all. :D
