Okay, we've talked "around" this in alot of threads but I'd like to ask again. When dancing Salsa (or any other partner dancing for that matter), what is the real purpose of knowing your role? Is it to establish "who is the boss"? No, IMHO, it's not supposed to be. Boriken describes it eloquently:"Pieces of the total", how beautiful the dance when the two become one on the dance floor. So, why is it that we have these man against women wars? Why do we get these I'm the leader so I'm king of the universe OR before a lady even dances with the guy, you beat him up because you don't want "any" guy to tell you what to do ATTITUDES? I really don't get the competiveness in "social" dancing. What do you think?
My aura, her aura engulfing each other making one seamlessly intertwined essence that we appear to be the whole instead of pieces of the total.
