Welcome to Episode 107 of the Salsa Kings LIVE podcast
We have been featured as #1 in “Top 10 Salsa Podcasts” on FeedSpot.
In today’s episode, we explore the concept of “Guys Follow” and dive into the key points raised by Andres. We’ll examine the significance of following the music, the role of the lead in decision-making, and the importance of creating a safe and considerate environment for the follow. Let’s dive into the details.
Following the Music: In partner dancing, both the lead and the follow should be attuned to the music. Just like a cook who decides what to cook while considering the audience, the lead must be mindful of the music’s rhythm and mood while guiding the dance.
Following the Follow: It’s not just about following the music; the lead must also pay attention to the follow or guest. The direction of the dance should be determined by how the follow responds to the lead’s movements. This collaborative approach ensures a smoother dance experience.
Expressing Yourself: Expressing oneself is not limited to any gender. While women may be better at expressing emotions or being in tune with their feelings, it is essential for everyone to embrace self-expression. It is a natural aspect of human nature that transcends genders and is meant for everyone.
Being a mindful lead in partner dancing entails more than just leading the movements. It requires a deep connection with the music, attentiveness to the follow, and a humble approach to decision-making. When a lead creates a safe and considerate environment for the follow, the dance becomes a collaborative and enjoyable experience for both partners. So let’s strive to be mindful leads and embrace the true essence of partner dancing.
Remember, it’s not just about following the music, but also about following your follow.
