As I sit here watching my wonderful, yet terribly uncoordinated, husband attempt dance steps, I am reminded of two things:
1) I am one lucky gal to have a husband who, despite not liking country music and not having the natural ability to hear tempo (pretty important in dancing), is willing to continue to try to learn to dance for my benefit.
2) the placement of your weight is highly underrated in line dancing.
90% of the time that a dancer is “off” on a dance, it is attributed to being on the wrong foot. During line dancing especially, the taps, brushes and scuffs are just as important as the actual steps. The key is that you need to be ready for the next step and each choreography is designed for that perfect balance, so not giving weight (or giving too much) can set the next step off “on the wrong foot”.
So remember, line dancing is not about throwing your weight around, but knowing where to apply it.
