...There was one guy I danced with a couple of times a few years ago... I had the absolute hardest time following him AT ALL when I started. I'd gone for the usual-around-here straight-on embrace, and just nothing felt right. I mean, seriously everything felt hella off. It had me seriously doubting myself. And then one time--still not sure how, if I adjusted, or we opened-then-closed and I ended up in a different position--I ended up sort of off to his right side with a pretty significant V-opening...and suddenly everything became easy. The leads were crystal clear, movement was easy, things just flowed. Strange how that happens sometimes.
