COUNT IS 1,2, 3&,4&
the and is not a step just a lift of the foot
you put the foot down on the count
WOMEN
Start with right foot and do just the opposite of the man
stance is just to the left of the man with his right foot between your feet and his left foot to your right
two variations of hold
mans right arm on ladies left shoulder
or the proper
mans right hand under ladies left arm and on ladies back shoulder blade
Ladies left hand is to be on mans right shoulder with elbow slightly bent
The proper tension is important
ladies and men's upper body must be slightly stiff
not like a robot but you must keep your frame
that is keeping your arms in exactly the same position at all times
framing is hard to teach over a long distance but is very important
practice keeping your arms at the same position at all times
women, don't let the man get any closer to you while dancing that he
does when you first start the dance and take your positions
it is your job to keep him at a distance so that you can execute your dance properly and
the arms are the only way to do this
don't let him move in on you use your arms to keep your
body away.
arms are always slightly bent never straight out or locked at the elbow
they are locked at the shoulder
