Butterfly

The waltz butterfly step is an extension of the under arm turn which moves forward through the space. This is a beautiful, sweeping pattern that is a favorite of all waltz enthusiasts!

Helpful tips

  • Maintain your shaping technique to create a polished look in the waltz butterfly. If you don't remember what shaping is, refer to the waltz box video.
  • Practice the turn by yourself with good posture. Once you've mastered it, try it close to your partner. It helps to try to look at your partner the entire tie you are turning- we call this 'spotting', and it helps with balance and also helps you finish facing your partner.
