Clint Steele replied to John Lowe's discussion Becoming the consummate leader in the group Ballroom Dancing
"I could not agree more, Jeffrey. That right level of confidence makes all the difference. I reckon it's not the confidence that nothing will go wrong, but the confidence, that no matter what does go wrong, you can handle it."

Jeffrey J Johnson replied to John Lowe's discussion Becoming the consummate leader in the group Ballroom Dancing
"While I would not say that a leader could lead ANY follower who did not know what you are doing, I do agree that it can sometimes be possible. A lot of it (from what I have found) depends on how much the follower will actually follow.  I…"

"Indeed they do - but that means you also need to know their level. Based on how long you've been dancing for now, you probably can do this. It reminds me of a tango (Argentinian) class i was at. The female teacher told me that I was now ready…"

"Thanks, Jeffrey, for taking the time to write such a comprehensive note. It's well articulated and very helpful. I will take your advice. I think the dance we will concentrate on improving next will be the nightclub two-step. Thanks again for…"

"Thanks, Leonardo. It is difficult here in Ohio to find venues that feature Latin music. In any event, the tango does look as if it would be difficult to learn, so good luck if you decide to keep at it. It was interesting hearing from someone in…"

Rob H replied to John Lowe's discussion Which dances, what order in the group Ballroom Dancing
"Depends what kinda thing you're after - I would probably recommend Waltz and Jive. Girls love a good waltz, the slowness and the closeness of it (at least if you're dancing it romantically, rather than competitively). The jive is a good…"

"I live in Brazil, so I wouldn't recommend you the same dances we dance here. Two nice dances that you can find anywhere are salsa and bolero. Tango looks nice, but I just had two tango classes and it does look hard to learn (I started dancing…"

Welcome to the community, John. My wife and I started ballroom dancing this week and we're really enjoying. We're leaning the waltz and foxtrot this week. How long have you been ballroom dancing?

Hi John. Welcome to AoM. Also, thought I'd give you a friendly invite to check out my relatively new group, The Great Debate. Just click on "Groups." It's the one with the colorful galaxy picture. It's also one of the most active groups on AoM. In any case, great to have you aboard.
