It's "F" here in Canada; you can tell because the leaves are changing color. 

Canada has a season for Farking?  And what does that have to do with leaves changing color?   Grin

I know what the warm up is. 

Interestingly the warm up is the inverse of the cool down.

I get the idea that sometimes, things are much simpler than we think. but to make a simple thing look good is another as we then complicate because it cant be true  Tongue

The other thing is that falling from which gravitation point...moving onto your foot with a heal lead then moving over the knee keeping the body inline with the knee, keeping your bum weight low?

Is that the right point?

Next time you go grocery shopping and push the grocery cart, analyze how you're "falling" onto the grocery cart to make it move.  That's really about it.  Wink

I find it interesting that people talk about falling in ballroom.

Certainly something I wouldn't recommend. Neither would I ever talk about push or pull, but there you go.

The key to foxtrot is body weight distribution between the feet and learning how to rise and more critically, how to lower.

Whats your opinion on lowering?

Very well said.  A person who doesn't understand "falling" should never try it, or push or pull or any of those terminologies unless demonstrated to them by someone who has employed it successfully and pain-free in their career.

Do you work in the diplomatic service SG?
I was just wondering...

But I would like to hear AH's take on lowering, there is room for diversity on PDO...

LOL!!!  Everyone asks me that!  I wonder why.

Definitely room for diversity.  That's why we know there are so many different schools of thought.

Our coach has talked about center balance and overbalance and it seems to me overbalance could also be described as falling.
