Discussion in 'Ballroom Dance' started by fascination, Oct 4, 2007.
I have a coach who describes the tucking action of samba in such a way that I cannot write it here because it's a PG site.
Yea, my pro will be showing me something and say "spread your legs" which of course I do, and then he looks at me and says "well that was easy"....
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
Foxtrot - "OI MADAM!!! That should be a heel turn EVERY day of the week and TWICE on Sundays!!" !!!
On considering giving us a particularly tough set of Quickstep moves - "Hmmm, I'd better just check my insurance before I do this, because you are going to end up flat on the floor at least once!"
On nearly being swung into the middle of next week when I stopped suddenly in Foxtrot - "Dear God, woman - when you suddenly drop anchor it is like trying to shift the Titanic!"
"you know just enough to be dangerous."
Here are some of my favorites from one of my coaches.
"Pretzels are more malleable than your legs!"
"Girls, you need to do a kinky leg thing."
Guys start laughing.
"I didn't mean it like that!"
"This is the pillow meter. Falling asleep on one side, ferocious tiger on the other. I am falling asleep. I want to be eaten by a tiger."
"At the end of this dance, one of you must die."
He stood there staring into space with his thinking face on. Then he looked at me, cocked his head, and said, "Do you want to be the witch?"
Of course, I said yes.
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!"
She turned me into a newt!
I got better...
