Lesson 9: The Dip

No dance is complete without a picture perfect dip! So, let's learn how to execute the picture perfect dip safely and gracefully.

Don't Forget ...

  • Leader, make sure to keep your upper body straight, shoulders rolled back and keep your weight on your left foot. To test your balance, try lifting your right foot off the ground.

  • Follower, keep your weight your right foot, bend your right knee and extend your left leg in front of you. Imagine you are sitting on a chair. Simply bend your right knee without tucking your hips or extending your leg too far forward.

  • Leader, keep your left arm high to support your partner's upper back. Follower, relax into the position and lean back onto your leader's arm to create a natural looking dip.
