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?.

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

I have found that my head actually stays still and it is my body that is moving underneath my head. I can't fix its position to any one place or it will feel awkward, stiff and off balance to the rest of me. I don't go anywhere not shaped by my gentleman. Yes, I do my steps and my jobs, but it is up to him for the rest.

I was taught there are 4 "SALES" and their sub-rules (ways the head moves) by several of the top teachers in England.

Each SELL is very different and their sub-rules can totally change the picture. The good thing is that once you understand the rules and their sub-rules it is very easy to feel if the "sell" is correct or not.

Like this...
Sell #1 has 5 sub-rules
Sell #2 has 6 sub-rules
Sell #3 has only 1
Sell #4 has 2 sub-rules

So all in all there are 14 ways the lady's head will move as response to her mobility.


The man will get "put" in the correct position when the lady does the correct "sales". As SG said the man follows the Lady....

Everyone tries to rush up through the syllabus levles and think once they are at the top they have arrived.  What they don't realize is that by doing this it is like skimming through a book, you may get the gist but you will never understand the story.

yes I agree. I have been watching some of the snippets from the GOC and I am in awe of some moves and aghast at others. I don't know what they are thinking :-/

I saw a foxtrot with a back-bend and so many quick syncopated steps that just did not fit into the music  Huh

What is going on
