I love a nice, connected dance. Sitting in the pocket of the music with my partner, grooving to the same beat, hitting the same breaks. He gives me time to shine (and breath) and I can tell what he wants me to do effortlessly. All of the spins and pretzel arm moves are fun, but I’d rather dance with a partner who slows down and enjoys creating something beautiful together.
