What I'm working really hard at following wise (in addition to the good old technique of everything else): Stay in or aim for or head towards the guy's right side, unless I'm not supposed to. I don't tend to have to stay in the guy's hand, I'm often running off on my own, so THAT isn't a problem for me, as I'm always trying to take his hand with me. And as far as my dancing in general, countering my own personal bad habits, when in doubt, get down into my knees more, my core probably needs to go forward, my upper body needs to stretch up. When I think of those things, the other things tend to fall into place for me. ETA: Forgot my other thing I'm working on. Maintaining a bit more resistance against my partner. I've heard it described in a couple places as that "level 5" resistance. Pressing back against my partner though. I'm not noodly, but I have to work to remember to give that resistance so I'll feel the lead sooner rather than later.
