Let's pick up where we left off yesterday- in pain and unable to move. And that was just from watching dance. [Ba-dum ching!]
Seriously though, men, stop doing this:
Several things could have happened here:
- he could have pulled her in with his right hand farther than he could handle with his left
- she might have stepped in to body contact with him and he didn't know how to do it
- he has no idea where his left arm is in relation to his own body, let alone his partner's.
Often, it's the third option.
Men, put your back against a wall and put your arms up at shoulder height, parallel to the floor, touching the wall (you'll look like a "t"). Now bend your elbows into dance position. Make sure that your left hand isn't very far from the wall. Your arms during body contact position aren't quite there, but they're pretty close.
Another test: while with a partner, "windshield wiper" your left hand (her right) and forearm back and forth. If you hit her in the head, your arm is on her side.
Here's another fun shot at body contact:
5. Lady closes her hand on man's shoulder. [Closing your eyes: optional.]
And awaaaaay we go.
Next up: lady's "shaping". Oh Lord.
Bits and Pieces:
I just registered for the TC Marathon. *hyperventilating* Someone tell me this was a good idea.
Guess what I'm watching?
