I prefer the 1.5s but my partner was so pleased to dance with me an inch shorter I'm wondering if the .5s would be acceptable or would it look odd?
I am sure he would feel .5 inch. You might also consider standing closer to 10/4 rather than 11/5. I know that has helped in cases where the man feels the lady is too tall.
very interesting - I wonder if he'd like that... and if I could do it! We've been working on keeping my centre over the standing foot in ALL steps (have a tendency to shift it too much to the left). Perhaps when I get better at that I can angle more.
BTW what do you mean by 'feel 0.5inch'? This came up because he liked me shoeless!
