Etiquette 101 - Codigos
Inspired from a post by Mari: "Trying to show a new move at a milonga is one of the most obvious marks of very poor dance etiquette."
I agree!!! Could we all agree to quit doing THAT?
Last Sunday I actually got scared as my partner (whom I had never danced before) lead me into a very deep volcada and then attempted to drag me across the floor! I wish the horror on my face had been recorded. He did that twice! So he's now on my little black list of "leaders who have little regards for their partner and prefer to show off than experience something genuine."
I don't mind trying new things but you have to be en expert leader to have a follower do new things at a milonga. I can count on the fingers of one hand the men I have danced with who managed to make me go "Wow! I did not know I could do that!"
