    What Shanazel said.

    One of my teachers loves to say that "Arms are the LAST thing to 'come in'". She's right. I've been dancing now for 14+ years, and like every other dancer, I still have problems with arms. Yea, they're tons and tons better than they were even 2 or 3 years ago, but they're not perfect. Kinda like the rest of my dance come to think of it, but seriously - arms are HARD. For everyone.

    omg! yes. I've been dancing for almost 8 years now and arms is my nemesis still. Practice and and lots of critical analysis of videos will make it better.

    1. Beginning dancer. Knows nothing.
    2. Intermediate dancer. Knows everything. Too good to dance with beginners.
    3. Hotshot dancer. Too good to dance with anyone.
    4. Advanced dancer. Dances everything. Especially with beginners

    Also try with your eyes closed. Frame ... and open your eyes ... adjust

    Oh, that's clever. That way the framing becomes more natural when you can't see what you're doing!
