Dancin' to Don't
I'm often behind the times culturally and just getting around to this Official Ed Sheeran video. I've danced to this song at least 100 times at west coast swing dances, where I often do a lot of improv to match this fine music. And almost just as often, at least some of the female west coast swing dancers complain about my playing with it instead of just leading them through the same boring patterns they were taught. Granted there are occasionally some more advanced dancers that also like the improv and so engage it with their own creations to compliment what I'm doing. This video encourages me to continue the practice, as that's what the dancer in the video does. And with a partner at some points. Play on!
