In this course, you’ll learn 15 different combinations of steps (ranging from beginner to intermediate to more advanced figures). We’ll show you how to dance the connections for each step and how to transition between steps. What you’ll need to do individually and as a couple.
This online course focuses on the most important elements of what creates great leaders and followers:
Frame – You will learn what makes up your frame and how to dance your frame.
Connection – What are the different types of connections. How to use your hands, palms, fingers when you connect.
Connection Directions – This is one of the most important things about connections. We will show you the directions of your connections, so that you can practice along even without a partner. As the leader, and follower, you each need to know what to do for every step.
These are skills and techniques that you NEED to know and do, to be a great partner, whether you are a social dancer, competitor, or professional dancer.
What about PRACTICAL APPLICATION?
As the leader, if you are fully aware of how to lead any step, then, you can always be confident to adjust to a follower of any level.
As the follower, if you understand the principles of how to follow and practice them. You don’t need to know a lot of steps. If fact, you can know very little, and be able to follow many different dances, as long as you have some familiarity with the dance rhythms. That’s a super cool skill to develop!

Answers to QUESTIONS You May Have:
