Spinning Techniques for Ballroom Dancing – On SALE!

Spinning Techniques to help you become a better follower and a better lead. Just like when you spin a top as a child, the same techniques work. You always go to the center of the toy top, and then spin. It is is exact same concept that will help you to learn how to spin a follower.

Watch this short video with Natalie and James in an actual lesson to learn how to spin and how to lead a good spin.

Just imagine that your follow has a halo. Your spinning techniques as her leader will improve as you just dust off the halo and you can lead her to spin like a top. Spinning techniques are easier when you know this secret.

Review: What’s the secret?

When you spin, you never do so on one foot. In Ballet, we call this move a pirouette . Very experience dancers do this move on one foot. Social dancers? Not so much. But the secret to a fast, social spin for a woman is to pivot on one foot 180 degrees, and then change feet to pivot on the ball of the other foot another 180 degrees. Tah dah – you just did a spin one half turn at a time. Double spins are done the same way, but twice. Please keep your feet close together  as in a Chainés turns. (Pronounced: Shah Nay) This position of the feet are called first position or in simpler terms – you put your heels together.

A few lessons will help put you in the right direction. The next step will be to practice what you are taught. Without the practice the dance lesson for spinning techniques will leak out of your brain. I suggest one lesson. Then go home and practice for a week. Come back for your second lesson and review and learn a few more dance moves. If you require more input, a third lesson should bring you closer to your goal. 407-297-9048

Dancing Tips for Women – Improve your Follow with Six Secret techniques 407-297-9048

Dancing Tips for WomenDancing Tips for Women is not as difficult as you may think. A man’s body movement (especially his shoulders) will give his follower many hints for what Ballroom Dance step he is about to lead. Learning to read this special language is the key to becoming a good follower. Here are a few Techniques I have learned through the years that may help with Dancing Tips for Women.

1) Watch the man’s shoulders. This is where I learn my biggest hint for Ballroom Dancing following tips from my leaders. What is it? It is his shoulders. Yes, his shoulders will precede any lead by a full two beats of the music. How? The man will start with moving his shoulders and then his feet will move and then the follower will move. (usually in that order)

2) Turning: (Spinning) Again, it’s the man’s shoulders. If you follow his shoulders you have a very good chance of being at the right place at the right time. So, if he is rotating his shoulders away from you, then you will most likely be going in front of him. Try to think of a mirror and you are his reflection.

3) The second indication that you are about the spin is his hand. If his hand goes up and is hovering over your head — he has created a “door” for you to exit. Say, “good-bye” and step through the door. Step to the music or step the same number of steps as he steps. If he doesn’t step, neither should you.

4) Watch where the man is looking, it’s a good indication to learn where he wants to go when he is dancing.

5) Watch your leaders hands — why? Because you will be following his hand. An example would be — if he puts his hand behind his head while holding your hand — he wants you to dance behind him. Think of his hands as your leash to learn which way to dance.

6) The biggest help in following is keeping your connection. Connection is how your arm gives his hand the way to spin you. If your arm is floppy, without any tone (stiffness), then he won’t be able to lead you and you won’t learn where to dance.

But, if your arm is toned or is like an outboard motor handle on a boat — see the picture to the right? Then he moves your hand, your arm is toned and it moves your entire body in the direction that the man is moving your hand, this makes leading you much easier and he will be happy you read these tips to learn how to follow while you dance.

Another visualization that may help any woman whoever played with a “Barbie” doll growing up is to look at Barbie’s arms. Barbie’s arms are the perfect example of how to hold your arms while Ballroom dancing. Barbie’s arms are slightly curved and they move her body when she is rotated by the leader lightly pushing or pulling. The follower is pushing back on the push the leader is giving. We sometimes call this our “dance frame” that is caused by the “tone” in her arms and the tone in his arms. This resistance or invisible connection is the secret language of following and leading. Without “connection” the man will not be able to lead you, and you won’t be able to feel the lead.

Salsa Dance Lessons

Salsa Dance LessonsLearning how to spin for salsa dance lessons is easy with private dance lessons in Orlando, Florida. This is a dance tip to help with salsa spinning techniques. Followers, you can save yourself injury with this important dance lesson tip for salsa and all ballroom dances.

It’s simply called, “tone.” Look at a Barbie doll. She has beautifully curved arms that are stiff – that’s tone. Unlike the Barbie doll, a human follower will have flexible arms until she feels the leader pushing against her arm. When she feels the push, she offers resistance at that time. Now she has good tone and is much easier to dance with for leaders.


The most important tip to remember for Salsa dance lessons is to have tone in your arms. When a follower has good tone in her arms, her leader can lead her without feeling like he is pushing her around the dance floor. Even the strongest man will get tired dancing with a lead weight.

Salsa Dance LessonsBut, if the follower is allowing the leader to push her arm and she offers resistance to that push – in a way she is pushing back, then the dance becomes free moving and looks great on the dance floor. Without tone in the followers arms, she can be injured by a beginning salsa dancer who is leading a little wild after a few cocktails.

Salsa dance lessons help to have an improved dance frame. The foundation of all dancing is a good dance frame. The follower will understand the lead better, and leader will lead better so the follower feels his lead. If your followers are missing your leads, it may be you need to have an improved dance frame. Since salsa is a spinning dance, this spinning technique will offer help for a great salsa dance lessons at dance.

Salsa dance lessons for fun and better health.

Leading Dance Techniques – What Women Want from their leader

Leading dance techniques for improved leading skills:

 

leading dance techniquesLook at the picture. Can you tell who is leading? No, it is not Mike, it’s Molly because she has her left arm up.

1) Women want 100 percent leading input — 100 percent of the time. Whew! If you are communicating what you want with your body language — you will have a better success rate of being followed while dancing.

2) However, please remember that leading dance techniques of pushing and pulling are not allowed on the dance floor. “Hey, but you just said in rule number one that I have to push and pull 100 percent of the time — What gives?”

Here’s the difference between a good lead and a bad lead: The pushing happens when the lady is dancing her back step — that means you are using her momentum when you push. Now you’re really not pushing her, you are telling her to step back. Ahhh, she feels confident she is where you want her to be.

The pulling happens when she is finished dancing her back step and is stepping onto her other foot to come forward. Your lead gently pulls forward as if to say, “Come this way.” BUT, and the key word here is BUT, because you are again using the lady’s momentum — you are motivating her movement to go where you want her to dance. Ahhhh, we call that “leading.” You must redirect her movements and energy the way you want to lead her for the best possible leading dance techniques available to you.

If you push or pull against her momentum, you won’t be popular on the dance floor. Why? Because this small difference of using “physics” to enhance your lead is the only difference of “man-handling the women” or being called, “pushy.” A description most men want to avoid. Use the “physics” and you will be knows as a good leader.

3) The other side of that coin is using your body for leading dance techniques and NOT your arms. Your arms are just an extension of your body. If your connection is good, (arms have tone or stiffness) when you move your shoulders that means your arms move and in turn your hands move. This body connection with yourself will give the lady two or three beats of the music to prepare for a new move that is about to come her way. This chain reaction of movement is what the woman will “feel” in order to follow your very obvious lead. Of course, if her body connection is non-existent then she will not be able to feel your body tone and the best lead will be missed.

4) Hand Placement: When leading your lady, try to use two hands to convey the follow you want. Just like in driver’s education you were taught to have both of your hands on the steering wheel at 10:00 and at 2:00, you will need two inputs on the lady. Number one input is your hand on her back placed at the shoulder blade. All other places on her back are NOT allowed. No waist, no underarm, no sides — too personal. Please use the heel of your hand (nearest the wrist) and then rotate your hand to the finger tips and vice versa to swivel the lady. All women love back rubs and this lead will be very much appreciated.

leading dance techniquesThe number two input is the man’s left hand is leading the lady. See the picture at the right? This is correct leading techniques. This is the place to gently push and pull the lady at the appropriate time during the lead. What is the “appropriate” time? ONLY when the follower’s momentum matches the push or the pull of your hand. Always keep in mind and never lose the crucial viewpoint that your follower is a “delicate flower.” You are constantly watching other dancers and the closeness to your partner to keep her out of harm’s way.
Please note: Think of your right hand on her shoulder blade as the rudder of a boat. By rotating your right hand from the heel of the hand to the finger tips is rotating the lady’s scapula or shoulder blade that very much resembles the rudder of a boat. The left hand would be the bow of the boat. It is much easier to steer a boat with the rudder than with the bow. Do the same when leading the lady.

5) Lastly, don’t feel bad if you have been taking group lessons for years and still have some leading difficulties on the dance floor. Two things may have happened because group lessons are not always the best choice for beginning dancers without any former dance experience. Face it, the teacher cannot split his or herself to be in 30 places at one time.

a) you may have learned dance steps, but did not learn leading skills.

b) the lady may have learned dance steps, but not following skills.
An answer to this dilemma would be to take a few private dance lessons in order to sharpen your leading or following skills.

You may want to think of this as learning a secret language to leading and following. The only way I know to achieve this secret language is through private dance lessons. Maybe treat yourself for your birthday? Valentine’s day or other special occasion . You will be glad you did. After all, you are investing in you and will be a benefit for the rest of your life. See you on the dance floor.
