When you Waltz, Fox Trot, or Tango, you must follow the line of dance. As dancers, we move counterclockwise around the perimeter of the dance floor. This keeps the dancers going in the same direction and moving smoothly. `
Dan as the leader moves forward. He watches for traffic and guides me around any upcoming obstacles. Sometimes it can be a very crowded dance floor and can be difficult to maneuver. It can be a challenge even for experienced dancers. This is one reason a leader and follower are offset in the dance frame. The leader sees what lies ahead. The leader trusts the follower to go with the patterns he leads.
As a follower, I am mostly going backward. I cannot see where I am going on the dance floor or what lies ahead. I trust Dan to lead me in a way that is safe. He leads dance patterns that fit in the space he is seeing ahead. I don’t have to worry when I trust. He cares about me and does not want to see me hurt by running into someone or something.
Take Me Around the Dance Floor
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8
