Three qualities that characterise ÅSA HEEDMANS’S favourite lead:

1. Steady with clear indications, no micro managing. A lead should not dictate what to do, that’s my least favorite thing.

2. Musicality is very inspiring. When leads have an ear for the music, are rhythmical and play along with the music, I like that.

3. Interact! A great lead makes me feel interesting as a follower, understands that we’re dancing together and values what we do as a team.
