How to walk and do heel turn

Today's class focuses on walking forward and back and how to do heel turn in international style standard dances. This would be the same for American style dances as well.

Walking: it's pretty much the same as walking normally, but make it bigger. But somehow, when people starts dancing, everything changes, they don't walk normally anymore. Learn how to walk forward and back again. Key points: Move center, keep body alignment, release toe (for walking back), track under body.

Heel turn: initiate by turning hips, leave upper body to partner, turn on moving/support foot, foot rise, push forward.
