Ladies, what do you do when you find yourself dancing with a gripper? Do you tell them? I really don't want to be one of those annoying people who start correcting partners on the dancefloor but this is very uncomfortable and with serious grippers (I danced with one last night) quite painful. I tried to wriggle my hand free but every time I did, he gripped harder with his thumb . I think this is one of the reasons I prefer the 'fingers in a glass' hold, it puts a stop to all that but I know some people don't like it, whatever hand hold the guy prefers I'll try to adjust (though it can feel strange at first sometimes if I'm not used to it), but whether it is palm up, palm down, two fingers.....whatever, surely it is the followers job to keep contact with the leaders hand until he doesn't want it, not the other way round?
