Something that Sounds Simple May Require A Lot of Practice

I have found that getting a new follower to change weight from one foot to the other without taking a step is one of the most difficult things to accomplish.

I think that this because it is often neglected by teachers at the very beginning. Many instructors are so eager to get their students dancing that this extremely important item is overlooked and often forgotten, just because it is "boring".

The key, I think, is to spend a great deal of time practicing this over and over until it becomes second nature (this is true of many of the simple things that make Tango work.)
