BALLROOM DANCE LESSON
HIP MOTION IN PLACE - SECOND POSITION
Stand in second position with feet apart at slightly less than shoulder distance. Toes are turned out. To the beat of the music, you will begin to bend each knee, one at a time. Make sure to fully straighten each knee before bending the next one.
Note: The woman above appears to swivel her feet slightly. This is actually poor technique, and should be avoided.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
Keep the following things in mind as you practice the exercise:
TO THE MUSIC...
Use the same rhythmic exercises as in first position.
OTHER FOOT POSITIONS
Other foot positions may also be practiced, such as fourth or fifth position. All of them are useful, but first and second position are by far the most important. They will give you the tools you need to start dancing with Latin hip motion.
