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

Tip #6: Maintain the Big Top

Most folks have slow danced long before becoming involved in ballroom dancing. The slow dance hold, where the partners have their heads together, is the opposite of what is required for ballroom dancing. In ballroom dancing, a very large space is created between the heads of the partners and this is necessary for effecting turning patterns such as pivot turns. In ballroom smooth dancing, to help create this space, the lady must stay positioned against the man’s right hand by stretching upward, outward, and leftward into the man’s right hand. Again, this ice cream cone shaped pairing or big top is necessary for effecting turning figures such as pivoting actions.
Make it to the big top in a pair of our closed toe ballroom dance shoes or our comfortable ballroom dance shoes…it’s your choice, but whatever you choose we are certain you’ll love our great selection at The Dance Shoe Depot.com
