Believe it or not, I used to do this kind of thing; won a few contests, too.
Our routine included me pulling my partner between my legs like that and tossing her over my head, too, only she was wearing a skirt with a bunch
of petticoats. Needless to say, I can't do that any more, but I was at least as good as this guy, and I think my footwork was a bit better. The girl here is awesome.
