I've been in a three-year-long head debate with my coach about this. No resolution in sight.

I will I promise you Cheesy We are dancing interstate on the week-end coming and will be doing two different age groups. The challenge of dancing with younger people pushes to (mentally) to try harder dont know why, but perhaps it is to show them that the oldies can do it Cheesy

I have often watch videos of myself and see that my head will move independent of my man on some occasions and I feel very uncomfortable when I view this, for several reasons. As the women's head should move as a result of the shaping of the man.
So I have trained myself to keep left unless it has been lead to go somewhere else.

I had a lesson with a respected coach later last week and they mentioned that I should move my head in a certain move and I said my speil that I wont move my head unless it is led and they said well you should dance your dance and if the man does not lead it and follow you then that is his problem!

How do you feel about that?.

are you referring only to this step? as The head moves in other positions, which leads me to another discussion that I will make a new Thread Cheesy

My mother and my teacher always told me to never follow a man as it would only lead to trouble. I have a feeling they were both right. My teacher told me to respond to a man however never follow him. The better you get the faster you should lower and the slower it will look and feel.

very profound and make good sense.  Shocked

Yes, I was just working with a Lady student on this exact thing this evening. I put it as the man initiates the movement and the Lady follows through. I remember hearing the phrase ...'Commence.... Continue... Complete ' a lot.

Actually, in reality the head is not moving... The body is moving under the body, so the Lady actually is always in the Leftward poise of Closed, but because her body changes (ie PP) the head appears to be in a different position, but is in reality not. It is an optical illusion.

What are some good examples of Peabody music to check out/youtube? I have an astonishing amount of store credit with Google Play, too, I can take advantage of.

As a beginner I would recommend any Ragtime style music that has a single steady beat. Think march style - Alexander's Ragtime Band, or Al Jolson's Mammy. Also Manhattan Transfer has a great rendition of Mr. Sandman.

That should get you started.
