Key #1 – Know your footwork!

It never surprises me how many dancers struggle to do their footwork on their own. I could go on an on about the benefits but if you want to feel like a better dancer make sure you know your footwork. Practice doing all of your basic patterns by yourself. Try doing them with without music. Better WCS dancing is sure to follow. (no pun intended)

Key#2 – Manage your connection

Sometimes it becomes necessary to be a bit stronger or lighter in your connection. Cultivate the ability to lighten up or to hunker down on your connection. The ability to change your connection in response to what is going on in a particular dance is an important skill to have. Practice dancing a bit lighter than usual, then a bit heavier. See if you can find instances during the dance to use both when appropriate.

Key#3 – Assess your partner

One of the keys of teachers and pros is the ability to dance with a wide range of partners. You need to be able to quickly assess the strengths and weaknesses of your partner and adjust accordingly. Use your skills from Key #1 & 2, your footwork and connection, to make adjustments based on your assessment. Are they ontime? Do they have connections issues? Perhaps if their footwork is too big, maybe its time to adjust and step bigger as well. Maybe you could lighten the connection, so your partners larger steps don’t pull you off balance.
