Mastering dancing technique gives you control over your body which allows you to have confidence on the dance floor. Mechanics, basic principles of movement, physical usage of the body, body actions, these are all important aspects of technique. Alone they are just plain motion, in order for them to become dancing, they are connected through music.
Movement to music
Main focus is listening to the rhythm and melody and focusing on the character of the song. Each song carries with it basic human emotions which have to be expressed through dancing. On the physical level a couple should create energy to get the dynamics and contrast. Endless movement is foundation to movement design.
Communication in a couple is achieved through physical contact: holding and framing. This is followed by creating shapes, direction and balance. Partners need to be focused on each other both visually and physically.
Choreography and Presentation
It is important to understand the character of each dance and convey the message to the audience. The couple should create their own unique style, know the meaning of the movement and be able to improvise.
