You were not there tonight. The move is much better when instructed by someone from a ballroom background. She said she did it open because that's her background but we very much learned it with closed legs tonight. You have to rotate from the hip, which leads to rotation of both legs equally, getting the swivel action without exposing yourself to the world. However, that's not to say I like the move. I don't like the beginning of the move because of how fast it goes and none of the guys being able to lead it such that the footwork flows the way it should. Doesn't help she played a jive the first time we tried to do it. That move definitely cannot be transitioned to jive unless you enjoy looking like a raving lunatic jumping around. I hate the bronze level hip swivels that progress down the floor in ECS. A) they're tough on my hips which don't like to rotate than much and B) most of the guys get this weird bouncy pattern when they do it. Blegh, no thanks. I can find better things to do out of my point kicks which look much sharper.
