The Promenade Position is a "V"-shaped dance position with
man's left side and lady's right side slightly open. The direction of
travel is toward the open side.
Man and lady stand in front of each other in body contact, slightly
offset to the left, with lady's middle connected to the man's right
front. The lady's feet should be positioned slightly behind the man's.
In promenade position, the man's head should be turned to the left,
the lady's to the right.
1. Body contact. The right half of the man's front is in contact with
the middle of the lady's front. The connection begins at the upper
thighs and should continue all of the way up to the middle of the torso.
2. Man's left hand to lady's right hand. Palm to palm in an upper-hand
clasp, with fingers and thumbs closed around partner's hand.
3. Man's right hand on lady's back. Right hand is loosely cupped with
fingers and thumb together (not spread apart). Hand connects to her
back on her shoulder blade. His wrist should make contact with her
underarm at the junction of her arm and body. This connection should
not change from basic closed position.
4. Lady's left hand and forearm on man's upper arm. This connection
should not change from basic closed position.
