Hi, Malcolm, Hope you are all well.
I read in WYJTD under Use of Hands -
"The hands are given primarily as a help to the other dancers. The
rule as to when hands are given should, then, be dictated by the
feelings of the dancers. etc. "
Not a teacher mentioned nor as included in the instructions.
Salve
Cheers, Ron :)
