When learning foxtrot I had my coach say something similar to me but it wasn't pg... lol
Though this weekend we had a lesson and the pro said to a couple spots in our cheorography: "That kinda looks like spaghetti"LOL. What he really meant was, that wasn't very clear. Our tango is no longer spaghettified now
This reminded me of one I got... coach was trying to get me to relax my legs to work on swinging action... after several attempts to verbally help me achieve this, but not seeing any change on my part, he asks, "Are you relaxed?" I say, "Yes." Then he squeezed my thigh... Then he has a look of surprise and exclaims, "You have thighs of steel!"
i once went for a free intro lesson with a teacher and we were doing standard waltz and he said "how can someone who is such a good dancer dance so badly?" didn't seem like a smart thing to say to someone who is trying you out!
Well, regular teacher not a coach, and during a social dance at a party. I somehow not only hit him in the chest on a turn, but caught the placket of his shirt. While I was apologizing profusely he said something sternly that I had to ask him to repeat. I had heard "the number one rule" and "your dance teacher" and thought it was going to be something along the lines of "the number one rule is to not damage your dance teacher." What he actually said was, "the number one rule is to not undress your dance teacher."
I warned a visiting coach that I tend to create new errors on the path of fixing one error even more than most students. After working on something a bit, she said,"Hmm, you really are quite inventive about finding new ways to do something wrong." Later on, she said, "Well, it's good to not try to work on too many things": i.e. one fix was taking a very, very long time.
With my danc teacher, we were doing standard waltz fallaway reverse slip pivot... I wasn't opening my legs enough in fallaway which made the pivot difficult since he couldn't get his leg in between mine
So finally once I did it right...
"Ah yes, this is where I feel most comfortable, in between your legs"
So much self control my friends to not bust a gut laughing
