I am in search of a partner who shares interest in the same dance styles as I focus on (Blues, Micro, Fusion, WCS)and would like to continue to learn, teach, and hopefully compete soon! Just a few hours a week would even be great. I don`t have a preference on whether my partner is male or female but I am a follow so as long as you can lead, we`ll work. I also am mobile and can travel to practice. I just need someone who wants to practice and who's passion for dance is as great as mine!
Thanks for your effort.. I have loads of 50/60s Sinatra, Dean Martin etc. I'm looking for albums ( like the ones that AM produced but up to date ). There was a compsny in Virginia I used, many years ago ,but doubt they are still around.
For the latin side. I have literally 100s of Rumbas and Chas, Samba etc, but all are authentic indigenous style. I do NOT use pop songs for teaching ! ( or DJing socials )
Not sure what you already have, but here are a few suggestions. None are very new--but maybe new to you. Foxtrot: Harry Connick, Jr., "A Wink and a Smile" Waltz: Andy Williams, "Charade" Rumba: Michael Buble, "The Way You Look Tonight"--different rhythm from the Sinatra version, which is a great Foxtrot
I've been out of the game for the last couple of years but want to get back into the swing of things. I need a female practice partner in the Port Orchard/Bremerton area that I can meet with once or twice a week to practice my steps and teaching techniques with. I'm trained in American ballroom, latin and salsa.
My scenario is almost exactly yours. I had a bilateral MTP fusion on 1/20/2016. I did both at the same time which I do not regret. Recently I have had some pain in the joint above the fusion and I was wondering what sandals people find comfortable. I am not concerned with heels. I have not worn heels for years. Any shoe or sandal suggestions would be appreciated.
Feeling like everyone but you understands a new figure and that somehow the instructor just started speaking a foreign language. Then you bite your lip, fight back the tears and remember eventually it will make sense, and just keep trying.
We will definitely need some clarification on what kinds of turns you're thinking of, since there are so many possibilities, and the technique can vary so much from one turn to the next.
There are the basic turns in the smooth and standard dances that you take in closed position (e.g. Left Box / Reverse Turn in Waltz), various underarm turns of free spins in Swing, Lindy and Jive (e.g Underarm Turn to Left, American Spin), Spot Turns, Switch Turns and Walkaround Turns in the Latin dances, and even generic 3-step turns, twist turns, chaine turns, etc that can apply to any dance, just to name a few.
Give us some context and we'll try to help you with some information and exercises.
