Useful 8 Count Basic

Description

The 8 Count Basic is considered to be one of the foundational moves of the dance, hence the reason it’s referred to as the ‘basic’. However, there are a few problems with it, most notably that it breaks the line, and lane of dance. As that is the case it’s almost useless in it’s current form. However, there is a way to make it not only useful, but far more musical, while at the same time creating options and opportunities for both roles to explore and play with – Enter:  A Useful 8 Count Basic.
