Lesson on Quickstep Technique

It's good to have a ritual to get into frame. On social dance floor, this could be brief, but the elements are still there.  In competitions, the ritual is dramatized. The 10-point system is described in details on Standard Technique page.

Natural Turn: first step, step straight.

On the natural pivot, the man needs to leave enough space between his legs for the woman to be able to step between, and that space needs to be maintained through the pivot.

The importance of the woman driving through on her forward steps was emphasized. Without that drive, she is not able to get around the man on the second half of the natural turn.
