Another thing to which dancers should pay attention is their posture and their frame. This really goes for all dances. Hands and arms are forward toward your partner in making the frame. The tummy should be pulled in, upper body inclined forward. The elbows should not go behind the back. If you have good posture in your dance frame, you’ll feel better as a partner, your leads and follows will be more successful and you’ll be more fun to dance with.
The beginning stages of social dance are probably some of the most enjoyable parts of your dance career or hobby. At the beginning, there are few expectations on yourself, so your learning is enjoyable.
Don’t be too critical too soon – and enjoy yourself!
