What Subjects Can I Concentrate On in a Private Lesson?
It helps if you have some ideas of what
you want to work on. This way we can
focus on your immediate concerns first.
As a beginner, you must focus on the
basics first. Each dance has a set of
beginning moves that must be mastered
before moving on.
IF YOU ARE BEYOND THE BASICS,
HERE ARE SOME AREAS THAT
YOU CAN ALWAYS IMPROVE:
* Connection and frame. Hands, arms,
shoulders and general body tone.
* Turns and spins ... hand connection
and arm tone in turns, spotting,
smooth out the lead and follow in
turns. Learn to keep your feet under
you, keep your body posture vertical
* Leverage and compression. Learn
contra body motion and contra body
placement. Work on lunges, dips,
mirroring your partner etc.
* Foot placement as it relates to
balance and smoothness. Learn how
to stay grounded in your foot
