7. The Lead-Follow of Weight change


To weight or not to weight: "It happens
only through feeling each other’s body"

The subtle and rhythmic musicality in close embrace style critically depends on a good connection and a smooth and quick weight change. Since there are no visual clues in this style for lead-follow and it happens only through feeling each other’s body, a heightened sensitivity is required for an effective weight change lead to work. You have to stop thinking and start feeling for the lead to work.
