Anyone care to comment on foot contact on teh floor? In standard (or latin for that matter) should you try to maintain it as much as possible or are there places where you really want to let go?
You should have contact with the floor all the time in the swing dances unless you are doing kicks or other steps where you are making a feature of lifting the food off the floor. In Tango the feet should lift of the floor but maintain as flat as possible (even though they are only lifted an inch or two). In the swing dances I think of stroking a pet with my feet. In the Tango I think of making foot prints in an inch of new fallen snow.
