Shadow to Typewriter

In this lesson, you will combining several steps you've previously learned into a showy pattern which brings dancers side by side and then sends them away from each other with a flourish. 

Helpful tips

  • If you're overwhelmed with the combination of 5 elements into one pattern, slow down and take this step by step. Ensure that you've really mastered each element before connecting it to something else.
  • Dancers should look at each other while in shadow position. 
  • In shadow position, leaders should avoid hanging their right arm around the follower's neck. This can be painful and creates a very heavy look. The arm should be around the follower's shoulder blades.
