Floorcraft for Followers

Followers Floorcraft? YES!

On a crowded floor, or when following a leader you are unfamiliar with your feet should remain close to the floor during any boleo to avoid injuring someone during such conditions.

It brings to mind an incident that happened while I was dancing at a milonga in Buenos Aires where I led a very small close circlular boleo, and my follower did a rather large whipping switchblade like thing that caused the follower from the couple in front of us to let out a blood curdling scream (More for effect than becuse of real pain I think). Talk about an embarassing moment.

I'll never do that again, no matter how good I think my follower is! (or will I?)

Floorcraft is the responsibilty of both dancers.
