Ballroom Basics: Ten Tips in Ten Minutes that Result in Ten Times Better Dancing

Tip #5: Learn the Correct Single Hand Hold Connection

In swing dancing and in many Latin dance figures, the connection is often with a single handhold. This connection needs to have rock solid integrity. The lady should cup her hand so as to provide a strong full-hand connection versus trying to effect connection only at her fingertips. The top diagram shows the correct way, the bottom diagram, the wrong way. Again, the top diagram shows the correct connection, the bottom diagram shows a weak and unreliable connection. In competition dancing, a momentary loss of connection can spell disaster.
