The secret behind it lies wheredifferent than most think. So just turn it over few Leaders and even fewer followers.

Helps, but is not the key: the toolbox

When we start dancing, our main goal is one repertoire to build on figures and movements. It's fun, especially when you notice that the repertoire is actually getting bigger. I always call it that ToolboxHas a filled toolbox valuable Advantages: On the one hand, it enables more varied dancing (for yourself and for your partner) and, on the other hand, tools (figures & movements) can be selected that are just for the challenge (of the music). Well fit.
The toolbox of ingenious dancers is mostly good filled. BUT - that's not their secret!
The key is not just dancing the repertoiren, whow you learned it. Rather, esdarum to understand how one figure is working and how to get them adapts and varies.

Which musical filter is the right one?

Ingenious dancers know this ideas after all, not only and can they vary, but they also know Which ideas just fit. They are based on the following conditions:
  • Energy / dynamics of the song: low - medium - high.
  • Place on the dance floor: hardly - normal - much
  • Musical aspects: Rhythm - melody - harmony

Rather, it is importantg, sto understand and adapt an existing repertoire. To practice you can do that mainly by (led) Try out. Workshops and courses on Figure are particularly suitable for thisn, dwhich are already part of your repertoire.
