Leading and Following Skills

Couple Dance Skills: Be a Better Leader and/or Follower (all levels)

Being a good couple dancer requires good basic skills in leading and/or following, things like weight, frame, resistance, leads from and to different parts of the body, moving from your center, and more. Dance classes usually focus on teaching you the steps and figures of a specific dance and often ignore the basic skills because of lack of time, and, well, you can only learn so much at one time. This class will help you improve those skills through a set of fun, interactive partner exercises. We'll swap roles frequently, so if you normally lead, you'll learn what it's like to follow, and vice-versa. All levels welcome, no partner or experience with specific dances needed.
