So what we're going to do is break it apart, and I'm going to show you the gentlemen's part and then Kristina is going to demonstrate for us the ladies'. So, in its most basic form, what we're looking at here gentlemen, we're starting again with our left leg just as we have in all the dances previous. So what we're going to be starting with is two walking steps forward. Walk, walk. And then we're going to step to our left. Side, together. And then we would just repeat that from there. Walk, walk, and side, together. So taking a look at that one more time, now we're going to add the actual counts to this step, which is going to be slow, slow, quick quick. And slow, slow, quick quick. Now I'm going to let Kristina demonstrate the ladies'. Kristina: Okay, so for the ladies we are generally in the smooth dances moving backwards, so we're going to start on our right foot. We're going to take two backwards steps, so we have back, back, and then side right, close left foot to right foot. Again, back, back, side, close. And the counts for that, as Aaron had said, are slow, slow, quick quick. So we're going to go on the right foot heading back slow, slow, quick quick. Slow, slow, quick quick. So let's try this together with a partner. And slow, slow, quick quick. Slow, slow, quick quick. Aaron: Now, let's try that to music.

Step 1: Get a partner While belly dancing and ballet can be done solo, ballroom dancing is always done in pairs. Ask a friend to help you out. Step 2: Perfect your posture Perfect your posture. Unlike casual dancing, a ballroom dancer doesn’t slouch or lean on their partner. Both the man and the woman must elongate their neck and body. Practice correct posture by standing straight against a wall. Step 3: Position the head Look over each other’s right shoulder. Now imagine you’re the most beautiful person on earth who has just met the other most beautiful person on earth. What’s that feel like? Exactly. Keep that expression throughout the dance. Step 4: Adjust your hand position Hold hands correctly. This means the man’s raised left hand holds the woman’s right hand, palms facing each other. The man’s right hand connects with the woman’s shoulder blade. His hand should be cupped, fingers together. The woman’s left hand should be on the man’s right shoulder, her fingers at the seam of his sleeve. Step 5: Position your body Having the perfect 'closed dance hold' means the woman is just slightly to the right of the man. This way the legs move between each other and the knees don’t hit. Tip When the couple is a man and a woman, the man generally takes the lead. In couples with just one sex, a decision will have to be made. Step 6: Draw a square on the floor Now that you have the basic positioning, learn the basic waltz box step, the most common step in ballroom dances like the rumba, waltz, or foxtrot. Start by taping out a small box on the floor. Step 7: Practice counting Practice counting one, two, three, one, two, three, one, two, three. This will be the essential timing, and the sooner it feels natural, the better. Step 8: Make a box with your feet Practice alone making a box with your feet. To make the first half of the box, step forward with your left foot — which is 'one' — and slide your right foot to meet it and then step to the right (two). Your weight now shifts to the right foot so your left slides to meet it (three). Step 9: Finish the box Now finish the box. Step back with your right foot (one) and slide your left to meet it and then to the left (two). Your weight now shifts to the left foot so your right slides to meet it (three). Tip If you’re in the women’s role, you will step backward to start. Step 10: Practice counting to music Now put it together, doing the box step by yourself in time to your one-two-three counting. Step 11: Practice with a partner Now practice with a partner. Count off five, six, seven, eight before you begin so you’ll both be prepared to start together on one. Tip Dancing is a close contact sport. Make sure your breath is okay before you start. Use a breath freshener. Step 12: Move around the floor After you feel comfortable with the box step, forget confining yourself strictly to the box, and let yourself move more naturally around the floor. Step 13: Start to turn Once you’re able to loosen up while keeping time with the beat, try turning. Turn slightly to the right as you step on one and two; you’ll begin traveling in a circle as you keep your basic box pattern. Step 14: Remember to maintain posture Remember to maintain your posture at all times, keeping your connection points. Stand up straight, Quasimodo! Good ballroom dancers never slouch or disconnect. Step 15: Practice every chance you get Now that you know how to do a basic waltz box step, practice every chance you get. This is just the beginning. Get out there and dance, dance, dance! Did You Know? 'Waltz' comes from the German word 'walzen,' which means to turn or roll.

Kristina: And I'm Kristina. Aaron: And we are professional dance instructors here in New York City, and today we're going to bringing you a series based on the waltz. Kristina: So the first step we're going to do is the box step which is like the most common foundational step for everything you're going to learn in the waltz. So just a couple of things really quickly. The waltz is a smooth dance, which means it travels around the room in a counter-clockwise direction, so if you're ever anywhere where there are people dancing, just kind of take note of the direction that they're going and make sure you join in and go that same direction. So we're going to start this pattern side by side. We're both going to begin with our left foot going forward. The girls just note that generally you will generally be starting this on your right foot going backward. So we're going to take our left foot. We have one step forward, one. Step to the side with your right foot, two. Close your left foot to your right foot, three. And then go ahead and take a step back on the right, side left, close right foot to left foot. So we have one, two, three, one two, three. And so a note for this, if you've ever seen waltz dancing, there is a rise and fall to this dance, so the downbeat is on one so we're going to call it, in its most basic terms, going forward, down, up, up, down, up, up. And that's just a really basic way to kind of get you familiar with the rise and fall of the waltz. You can kind of try to add that in. So let's dance this with a partner. So we're going to take our traditional dance hold, palm to palm, and then girls you're going to take your right hand and place it just below the shoulder. Gentlemen your left hand will be in her palm, right hand will be on her shoulder blade. So, another important note. When you set up, be slightly offset. So girls think about stepping slightly to the left. Guys, think about having her slightly to her right. That way you won't hit feet when you try to dance. So we have one, two, three, one, two, three, one, two, three. We can also take this basic step and we can rotate it to the left a little bit, so we'll show you that right now. And one, two, three, one, two, three, one, two, three, one, two, three. Now let's try that to some music.

Now with our cha-cha we're going to be talking about a little bit of a different kind of quality of action, this being a dance that's come over from Cuba in the late 1940's. We're going to add a little bit of a Cuban action to this and place more emphasis, on putting our weight on the balls of our feet. So we're going to dance this forward a little bit more. One, two, three and back again, one, two, three. Now our second element of the cha-cha basic is going to be a side step. We're going to start in this dance with our left foot and we're going to start side, together, side, together, side. And just the same back in the direction we were coming from, to our right. Side, together, side, together, side. Again, with a little bit of that Cuban action, as well. Side, together, side, together. Really digging down and back where we came from, to our right. Again, side, together, side, together, side. Christina: And the last element we're going to talk about is the rock step. You take your left foot and you're just going to place it behind you. You're going to step back and put your weight back on your right foot. So weight on the left foot, weight on the right foot, and again, we're going to add that Cuban hip motion in. You're going to step back and replace forward, back, replace, back, replace. The trick to this move is, I'll show you from the side. You want to keep the movement underneath your body, so you don't want to think of stepping back and forward. You want to keep it very small. It's just going to be right underneath your body, back and forward, back and forward. Great. Aaron: Okay, guys. So just to recap, the four elements of the cha-cha basic were; walking steps, forward, backward, sidesteps and the fourth element, the rock step. Now we're going to take those, and put those together, and make up our cha-cha basic. Just like so, side, rock, step, side, together, side, rock, step, side together side, rock, step. Now forward and backward with the walking steps,cha-cha-cha, rock, step, cha-cha-cha, rock, step and side, together, side. Five, six, seven, eight, one, two, three, cha-cha, one, two, three, cha-cha, one, two. Cha-cha, one, two, three, forward, two, three, cha-cha, one, two, three, cha-cha, one, two, three, cha-cha, one, two, three, side together, side.

Kristina: And I'm Kristina. Aaron: We're professional ballroom dance instructors coming at you today from New York City, and today we're going to be talking to you about a little dance we call the swing, also what we refer to in the ballroom world as East Coast Swing. So what we're going to be doing is starting taking a look at the basic action. So gentlemen, let's take apart our footwork. What we're doing, guys, is we're always starting with our left leg, and what we're going to be starting this dance with is what we call a link step or a rock step. Taking our left leg and rocking it behind, one, two. And then following this up with a triple step action going side, together, side, and then repeating that with our right leg to our right, side, together side. And then following that up again, rock step, one two three, one two three, rock step. Now Kristina is going to demonstrate the ladies' part. Kristina: Alright. So, ladies, we are going to start with our right foot in the rock step. So we're going to take our right foot and step behind, replace, that's our one, two. And then slide to the right, three and four, five and six. Again, one, two, three and four, five and six. Aaron: Now we're going to talk a little bit about the different hand holds we're going to be using in the swing. For starters we're going to be using a bit of a modified hold here from what we're used to in most of our ballroom dances where gentlemen we're actually going to place our thumb on top of the lady's hand and bring it down to about waist level. Here we're also going to be slightly turned out as this dance has a lot of rotational action that we're going to see right away as we rock step. Now there are several other types of holds as well. We're also going to be using a double hand hold, a single hand hold, and an open position, as well as a handshake hold that you'll see will get us into several more of our advanced patterns. Now let's take a look at that basic action again together, one more time. And, one, two, three and four, five and six. One, two, three and four, five and six. One, two. And now let's try that with music.

It's Aaron. Christina: And I'm Christina. Aaron: And we are professional dance instructors here in New York City and today we're going to be continuing with our waltz series taking a look at the progressive step in the waltz. Christina: So, for the progressive we're going to back up just a little bit because this move is going to take us forward and then we're going to have it take us back, and we're both going to do it together beginning with our left foot. So, we're going to do the first three steps of a box going with our left foot forward, side, close. Now instead of completing that box and going back on the right foot, we're going to continue to go forward on our right foot going forward, side, close. One more with the left foot, forward, side, close. And then from here we are going to do three in the opposite direction moving backwards, beginning with our right foot. Back, side, close, left, back, side, close, right, back, side, close. And generally when we do this figure the ladies will be the ones moving backward and the gentlemen will move forward but it's good to know both parts because you never know when you may have to do the other one. So, let's try this together with a partner. And one, two, three, one, two, three, one, two, three, one, two, three, one, two, three, one, two, three. Aaron: Now let's try it to music.

Kristina: And I'm Kristina. Aaron: And we're professional dance instructors here in New York City, and today we're coming at you with a little dance we like to call the jive. So for starters let's take a look at the basic footwork. So gentlemen, why don't we take a look at our footwork first. We're going to be starting again with our left leg and we're going to start with that link step, or rock step, behind us. Starting with one, two, three and four, five and six. One, two, triple step, triple step, rock step. Now one thing you'll notice here with the jive, a key characteristic of this and in the music is this percussive accent that we tend to highlight in our foot and leg action where we accent with the knee one, two, and three and four, and five and six, seven, eight, so as to differentiate between the swing and the jive itself, which are both members of the same family and come from that basic swing dance action. But again, as this music is a little bit faster and tends to have more of a percussive accent and rhythm, a-one, two, a-three and four, a-five and six, seven, eight. A-one, and two, three and four, five six. So now let's take a look at the ladies' footwork as well. Kristina: Okay. So ladies, again, everything that Aaron said, it's related to the swing. There's a little bit more knee action but it starts the same way. So ladies, we're on our right foot. We're going to take a rock step. Rock step. And then side triple. Triple step and triple step. One, two, and three and four, and five and six, seven, eight. Aaron: Now let's take a look at this action together. So, we have our closed position here that we're starting from, and so as we don't bump knees together, we're actually going to rotate slightly outward on a little bit of an angle here. And one, two, and three and four, and five and six. One, two, and three and four, and five and six. A-one, two, three and four, and five and six, and one, two. Now we're also going to talk a little bit about the different hand holds that we're going to have within this dance. Kristina: So we have the traditional kind of swing/jive dance frame with the lower hand hold connection. Aaron: Every now and then we're going to take this hand hold that we have here and change to a little bit of a palm-to-palm action which is going to help us gain a little bit more leverage in some of our advanced techniques. Kristina: And then we also have a double hand hold, and then we can have a single hand hold, right to left. Or the handshake hold, which is just what it says. You're shaking hands. So those are some of the different hand holds that we have in the jive. Now let's try that to some music.

Kristina: And I'm Kristina. Aaron: And we are professional dance instructors here in New York City, and today we're going to be talking to you a little bit about a dance called the rumba. So first of all, we're going to take apart the basic action in this dance and what we're going to come up with is what we usually refer to as a box step. So what we're going to do is we're going to start with our left leg, and we're going to start with a step forward, and then we're going to take our right foot and step directly to the side, and then replace our left foot together with our right, and taking a step back on our right, and then directly to the side on our left, stepping together with the right, changing our weight, and again continuing forward on the left. And side, together, back. And side, together, forward. Side, together, back. And side, together, forward. Now the rumba has its origins in Cuba. Now this is a Latin dance and we will see a lot of hip action across all of these Latin dances, specifically more in this rumba as you're going to see with the bending and straightening of the legs creating a sort of lateral settling of the hips, as well as somewhat of a figure eight action that begins to happen that gives us that great Cuban motion. And back, side, together, forward. And side, together, back. And side, together. Now we're going to count this using slows and quicks. So we're going start, forward on our left with slow, and step quick quick. Slow, quick quick. Slow, quick quick. Slow, and quick quick. So now let's take a look at that with our partner. Starting in our closed position with our left to right hand hold somewhere about chin height where it's comfortable for both of us, and placing our right hand on the lady's left shoulder blade as the lady places her hand on our right shoulder close to our deltoid here. So starting again with our left foot forward and right foot back for the ladies, slow, quick quick. Slow, quick quick. Slow, quick quick. Slow, now I'm just going to demonstrate how this dance is actually going to rotate as well, counter-clockwise, to our left, quick, quick. Slow, quick quick. Slow, quick quick. Now let's try that with some music.
