    Mmmm, only when it works. Until you "get it", it's evil torture.

    Yup, when Foxtrot goes badly, it's like a lumpy wrestling match moving along LOD.

    Been loving the Slow Foxtrot. Instructor recently made all the difference. Feather Step, Three Step, yeah baby.

    Oops, I was supposed to write about something I dislike. :p

    aside from the swing move where you tap on each other's back or shoulder, i can't think of any step i hate... if i don't like something, it always seems to highlight something in my *body* i need to fix so i can actually do the step properly and find out its unique benefits.

    but that tappy swing thing... really... who made that thing up??? (it almost makes me want to leave the floor when someone leads it. just seems to... utterly... goofy)

    Yes. You'd better. Instead of annoying me hear with the fact you can do Feather Steps. :headwall:

    OK, I hate the merengue basic. Actually I don't hate it, I just think it's kind of, ummm, funny.

    the definition of monotony, right? :)

    Merengue basic: Bo-Ring.

    Until you get a leader who loves it and makes it into something delightful. Rare, but it happens.
