Holy crap, we just learned the most awesome extension to the basic whip in west coast swing tonight. (Too bad it’s something that the follows have to do; leads can’t just lead their way through it…)

Also, if you pair me up with an insanely gifted follow (I’m not quite sure why she’s taking the class, to be honest), we can actually have a fun dance. As in, I’m a decent enough lead that I don’t wholly cripple a good follow’s ability to play. Holy crap.

[“Play” has been my eternal nemesis in WCS, for the uninitiated.]

After tonight, I have the tiniest sliver of hope that I haven’t already encountered my glass ceiling with this dance. I’ve harbored that fear for about five years, now… making this bit of hope rather refreshing.
