The venerable Side Step. It’s so innocuous that most dancers, most teachers, don’t even consider it’s power. This is one of those important in between steps. We must learn how to articulate it properly, the 5 things we want to avoid, and most importantly how to stay with our partner regardless of role.
The side step achieves that in spades!
“Side Steps” aren’t just a Follower thing, nor are they a Lead thing. They’re a ‘dancer’ thing. Meaning that this video is applicable to either role and must be studied with the same zeal regardless of one’s role in the dance because exactly the same technique applies in both cases!
