Lesson 4: Basic Step

After learning all of the essential elements in section 1, you are now ready for your first dance step, the basic step. 

Don't Forget ...

  • Leaders always start with the left foot and followers always start with the right foot.
  • Keep your weight on the supporting foot during the "taps" (count 4 and 8). In other words, you shouldn't be shifting your weight while tapping. 

Helpful tips

  • It's a good idea to practice to songs with different tempos. This will help you get more familiar with the basic and become a better dancer in general. Feel free to use this playlist for practice.
