Creative Tension in product development: "The gap between vision and current reality is also a source of energy. If there were no gap, there would be no need for any action to move towards the vision. We call this gap creative tension." Peter Senge, The Fifth Discipline

Creative tension in swing dance: the pressure needed to be in clear non-verbal communication with your partner

This is a sign-posting deck for an interactive workshop where participants experience the power and delight that this tension can inspire in teams of people working together toward a common cause.

Context
At Agile 2014, a group of spiffy people met up for a whiskey tasting. At some point Arlo Belshee (@arlobelshee) declared that he'd always wanted to learn to swing dance. Corey Innis (@coreyti) offered to help teach. Marc Johnson (@marcjohnson) and I (@bonniea) looked on with kind amusement as they both tried to lead and then magic happened.
