Recently, I’ve been noticing a lot of follows, both really great and mid level, are dancing what I would call swaybacked (see 2nd posture from photo below…its kind of exaggerated but you get the idea). And I’m not sure why. It can feel relaxed and “gooey” from the full torso connection. However, it can also be very bad for your back and body.
I have a few theories as to why followers are dancing like this, and a lot of it has to do with the leaders. But first before I mouth off about it, what does everybody else think? Is dancing swaybacked good? Bad? Better? Worse? Why are people doing it? And does it matter?
Also! Tuesday Study Hall is staring! This coming Tuesday (the 29th) Yayyy!
7pm – 10pm. $3 students $9 community. Wheeler Hall, Room 222.
And if you missed it, Thursday Class (free) & practica ($1) with the Argentine Tango Club of Berkeley has started again. 8pm Thursday, Hearst Gym Room 251.
