Today is my last dance class with Vernon. Apparently he is withdrawing from teaching as he has many competitions to participate in.
So I was watching Khai Hoong, an older dance teacher teach the older students how to dance the Waltz. He was very detailed and articulate in teaching them the steps.
It was mesmerizing watching him lead an advanced student.
In dancing, the female has to know how to read the man's signals and to follow his lead.
Not only does she need to know how to dance her own steps, she also has to know how to carry her own weight, her body must also be strong enough.
The man on the other hand, must know where he wants to dance, and also know how to lead, as well as communicate with the partner. This is all done using body language with using any words.
This sure is a tough act to follow!
