Funny (actually aggravating) how one can learn moves or styling in a salsa class, and then find that they hardly work at all on the dance floor. Even practicing with a friend doesn't always help: I'll be able to use the moves with her, but nobody else. It's obvious why this is so: The women in the class are also learning the move, and know what to do. Sure, a follower at a really high level can simulate being naive and then point out the flaws of our leading, but they aren't in the typical salsa class. Eventually, I can sometimes work out what's wrong with enough practice on the dance floor. If the woman's not turning, or turning the wrong way, it's obvious that I'm not making the turn clear or providing enough momentum in the direction I intended. The trouble with too much of this during a song is that it results in a not-very-smooth dance. Makes me wonder if one should take a private after every 1 or 2 group classes to work out these issues.
