Finally got a student to understand the difference that Rise and Fall refers to the body, and Rise and Lower refer to the feet, and that both need to be addressed seperately when we dance. Light bulbs! Epiphanies! He is getting better now.

I love those moments Cheesy
thanks for high-lighting Q.... I'm pretty sure we do this - but have to think it through...

The rise and fall of waltz and slow foxtrot are very different. Waltz generally uses gradual rise whilst slow foxtrot generally uses quick rise.

This is one of the many confusing terms used in ballroom. Quick rise, does not actually suggest that the rise is quick. It simply refers to the fact that the rise to maximum height occurs over one step, instead of over a series of steps.
