Ballroom & Latin Technique, Figures and Groups

Everyone can Improve their dancing by understanding the characterisation and technique of each dance. As well as communicating this with a partner.

Through my private teaching lessons, common issues that appear over and over again. We look at why these happen and look how to correct these in order to make a better and more enjoyable dance.

These are just some of the aspects include:
1 - Learn to correct timing of each dance - you'll be surprised how many people don't really understand this
2 - Correct foot placement - become a dancer, not someone who's just dismounted from a horse !
3 - Body alignment - connection with your partner
4 - figure alignments - in order to link figures together each one needs to end in the correct alignment in order to perform the next
Also - CBMP, Using CBM , Sway, Swing, Leg actions, Head Position, Poise, Posture and Weight

Plus a great deal more on this subject, which is overlooked, rarely ever seen danced correctly and is fundamental to everything that a dancer is wanting to do to produce a step of figure of steps.

Come and give it a go. No-one has all the answers yet but you will always take away something that will improve your dancing. :-)
