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

Tip #8: Learn the Dance Walk

Many dance teachers teach a drill or exercise called The Dance Walk to help their students understand the correct way to move when dancing smooth dances such as the foxtrot. Many beginners dance with heavy, plodding steps. In contrast, the dance walk develops a smooth, gliding stepping style. The key is that the swinging, free foot always skims the floor as shown. On forward walks, the moving foot skims the toe and then the heel. On backward steps, the moving foot skims the heel and then the toe. Notice that the dance walk is smooth and gliding, not heavy and plodding.
