oops, I have to say that I do NOT like the moving of the woman's foot by
the man's. It looks sophisticated maybe (not to me) but where is the
musicality?..I have never seen a foot sweep that had any relationship
to the music being played. If this continues to build, there's no telling
where this will lead..(not a pun).

Mario:
I don't have to see the video to know you don't understand barridas
(sweeping of the foot). The man doesn't move the woman's foot with his foot.
The man places his foot next to the woman's foot, leads her to step,
usually, but not always sideways, and moves his foot when she moves her
foot. He sticks to her foot like velcro. The sweep is an adornment. The lead
comes from the chest NOT the foot. If he pushes the woman's foot with his
foot, the woman could change her weight to the foot he's trying to sweep.

Heh, I see the ensuing post from here:

First person: "What do you mean you don't have to see the video?"

Second person: "Well your post ah... it's just the vibe".
