Some magic technique for leaders

From Terpsi

Marcelo El Chino Gutierrez, at class today:
"So notice what is going wrong here. If at the end of the figure, I try to pull the follower to get her to be upright in the close embrace, look how uncomfortable and off balance she is. But watch -- it's like magic. If I stand upright, if I straighten myself up; she will straighten up and change her posture too. It's pure empathy. I don't need to do anything to her. I just alter my own position and she will naturally copy me."
