Standard Dance Technique: Balance, Movement

Technique points:
  • It's important to be balanced over foot one is pivoting on.
  • Follower should be slow to put her foot down for step 6 of the natural spin turn, as setting her foot down too early will limit the amount of rotation possible. This is part of the general technique of waiting for the leader to commit his weight before the follower commits hers.
  • On Quickstep Lockstep, feet should be aligned with where you are going.
  • On backwards steps with settling, the heel should not touch the ground until both feet are together.
These are noted on the international standard techniques page.
