Watch the basic steps with the world competition couple.

This little exert from a competition routine has the beautiful basic steps most of you do in your waltz.  Please note a couple of extra things:

1) The amount of height the man gets through his feet & ankles on beats 2 &3 ,

2) The compression through the knees to get the length of stride he achieves.

While you may not be able to do these steps like this couple, you will find that adding foot rise and compression in a similar way, your waltz will feel much more beautiful.  These are things to practise even before you get on the floor with the foot excerises we sometimes talk about in the lessons.

Lesson List for TERM 4

I have put in some favourite sequence dances for the 7 pm Dancers this term.  I am hoping this will get some of the new learners up a bit more for the sequence time that everyone else enjoys.

PLEASE remember for the lesson time that it is difficult to teach with background noise and as the participants are there to learn, keep your chatting and noise outside while the lessons are on.
