WALK – Tips For Social Dance

If you can’t dance walk, you can’t dance.

Walking is the foundation, the basic, of the dance. It’s not the well known 8-count basic that is taught in many beginners’ classes. That is just a convenient sequence that puts together some of the basic dance movements. If you go to a beginner social dance class in a serious dance school, the instructors will not let you move on to anything else until you understand how to walk, to transfer the weight and then walk with a partner. It may appear simple, but it’s a challenge, and when executed correctly, it’s beautiful. They say it takes at least 5 years for a working couple to be able to walk together. The best advice once you’re dancing is: keep practicing your walk!
