Easy to lead but not so easy to follow if the invitation to pitter-patter lacks clarity and strength

Really? In my view a move for advanced followers : not even worth trying if the walk isnt "working" perfectly

Agreed re the past 2 posts. Fun, but overdone IMO sometimes by the follow when not led.

can someone tell me which step was the pitterpatter - I saw a few fast actions but not knowing AT can't be sure... A time point in the video would help

Whole vid is full of them  Smiley

eg 1:06,1:11,1:30,1:35,1:40,1:51,1:57,2:02,2:06,2:11

The more skilful option is leading the partner to pitter patter but not doing it yourself, or vica versa

Piter patter is dancing little fast steps (akin to the sugar plum fairy dance) that are too quick to lead and follow so one of you holds the beat and the other can pitter ptter or both.

I see no reason why they can not be led....I do it all the time.

Pitter... patter?

We dance something similiar, but it is more up and the footwork is sharper. We don't shuffle... No slag on the video intended. I'm just wondering if pitter patter is a name for little feet shuffles?

Yeah I noticed that. I think it's hard to get it consistently on the phrasing. Maybe if you dont it becomes a bit more shuffle (oh I've started so I guess I should do something....). Or maybe they were just getting tired.... (pitter patter)
