At the end of the day, I wouldn't worry about a partner offering you advice on the dance-floor because you ultimately have the choice never to dance with them again. I try to get as much satisfaction as possible out of the dance, no matter who the follower is. I had a follower tell me that i did a turn pattern wrong because i finished it with a hair comb instead of with a hand flick. I thought to myself, "Huh? I'm improvising baby, I can do whatever i like at the end of the pattern because i'm in control of my dancing and don't need to stick to dance-school set turn patterns". But on the outside i just smiled happily, and kept on dancing. Just smile and try to have fun.
