    They tend to stand in third position, heel of one foot to the instep of the other. In fourth position the feet are separated forward and backward.

    Some walk on their toes or at least with a toe lead, and yes, in a very specific way.

    Let me introduce you to my pre-champ Standard dancer boyfriend... who walks with a programmer's hunch when not on the floor.

    I've been called a dancer for my entire life, and only took up any sort of dance in college. Sometimes it's natural.

    Confirmation bias, I guess ;)

    OH MY GOD, that is why I always get an awkward both-heads-on-same-side hug incident when someone comes at me to my left! I hadn't thought of that!
