Lesson 2: Posture and Dance Hold

Remember when your parents used to yell at you about your posture? Many of us have bad posture but it really shows when you are dancing. So, before learning your first dance step, let’s fix your posture and learn how to connect to your partner with a proper dance hold.

Don't Forget ...

  • Keep your head up and look at your partner when you dance.

  • Keep your arms firm and maintain the distance between you and your partner. As Patrick Swayze says "No spaghetti arms!"

Helpful Tips
