February 2012 Week 4

Series Lesson Turns & Pivots with Matt Mickle

This month Matt Mickle and Lucy Bellwood bring you a series on incorporating smooth pivots and turns into your dance. Building on simple moves that you can add to your repertoire of basic traveling movements, they’ll take you through slick pivots in closed position and close embrace, adding taps to your basic for increased rhythmic variation, clean preps that will lead your follow into any number of sweet open turns, and a few elegant leans and dips to round things out. This third class deals specifically with closed pivots and the mechanics of moving into open turns via preps. Please note: class starts at 7:15pm this week! Come on time to get the most out of the material.
