The Naked Truth: Real Talk about West Coast Swing

50 EpisodesProduced by Eric JacobsonWebsite

A weekly podcast where hosts Eric Jacobson and Deborah Székely discuss West Coast Swing, our dance community, and the impact they both have on all of us personally.


Leading and following

At the heart of our dance is partnership - the interaction, collaboration, and relationship between leader and follower. In this episode, we chat about what leading and following are, how they work together, and what we want (and don't want) in a partner. We talk about partnership in the context of dancing to the music, building trust, and competing. Plus, we discuss our pet peeves, how the nature of partnership in our dance has changed over the years, and how we each teach people to become better leaders and followers. Take a listen and deepen your own understanding of this thing we call "partnership."
