Darn, I have a dancing icon over on LJ, but nothing here.

It's funny; this stage of, "I generally know what my body is supposed to do based on what the lead does, yay!" came immediately with waltz, but I'm still clawing my way to it in AT. :P

I know exactly what you mean by this. I'm the same with waltz, which is super-easy and, at this point, more or less unconscious for me depending on my partner, and I'm about the same for East Coast swing. West Coast swing I still have a lot of trouble with, and the one time I tried salsa... well, let's just say it does not appear to be a very easy dance for me to pick up. I think if I could get a handle on the footwork I'd eventually be okay, but I still have to concentrate too much on the footwork to be very responsive.

As to what you've said about the leads from the instructor's intermediate classes.... eeeee. There's nothing more satisfying, I think, as a student dancer who's a follow than having a really good lead who knows what they're doing, even just in general "not afraid to lead properly" terms. It's such a feeling of release, and getting lost in the movements. ♥
