DANCE TIP

 Dancing Nightclub 2-Step:

 

When doing the rock-step part

of the dance, 

DO NOT hook one foot

behind the other.

STEP STRAIGHT BACK while

keeping your shoulders still and parallel to your partner's.

Your legs, knees, feet should be moving, not your whole body bouncing all over the place.

- Jason Barnes,

Champion Dance Instructor
