Settle an argument

There was a discussion over which video is the best. You may have seen our events page where the wonderful Alexandra Wood and Guillermo Torrens will be showing us what their feet, posture, balance can add to their dance culminating in a beautiful performance.

Over on the events page is what she wanted. Over here is what I chose. Let me know how you feel?

What if…

I mentioned this to Tilly and told her how surprised I was at how many leaders are giving this follower feedback and Tilly’s first comment was “that’s just part of being a follower.”

So you are dancing a class and you, as a leader, feel you really have important to say. I mean you are a leader. You have a need to be heard!
