FIRST POSITION
Feet Together

Shown above with slightly less than 90 turnout, first is the position where the feet are close together, held directly under the body. The body weight can be placed entirely on one foot, or be split between the feet. Variations of amount of turnout are common, ranging from the parallel position commonly found in the smooth dances, up to 90 typical of latin dancers. Note from the illustration above that when turnout exists, only the heels are in contact with each other. If the feet are parallel, they will be in contact through the entire length of the inside edge.
