A few things I have learned about dancing, by regularly dancing both roles
socially for two or three years. My experiences may or may not be in common
with anyone else.
- There is a tremendous range between OK, good, and great followers, of which they are almost all totally unaware.
- Leading poor followers is very difficult; it requires a range of skills, resilience, and physical training.
- Leading OK followers is fun, especially if they are interested or enthusiastic and easy to be with.
- Leading good followers is more fun, especially if, etc.
- Leading great followers is amazing, and you don't feel like you have to do anything, and whatever you do do is totally effortless.
- There are a lot more than those categories.
- Don't bother raiding the cool guys' “harems”, they're disappointing, dance-wise.
- In a good ronda, under good physical conditions, with good followers, leading is cognitively much less demanding than following. The difference is dramatic. Getting the basics to a good standard is quite a lot of work, but if you can do that and then stay within what you've mastered, good and great followers will dance with you, and it is effortless.
- It is possible to flirt with the table of glamorous Dutch lesbians through the medium of another woman's body.
- There exist men who are both hot and good followers. Hang on a minute –
