In the oldtimes of zouk the ladies turned almost the hole time to the left. Today we try to use all possibilities we have. That’s the reason why it’ very important to learn to turn to the right and use the same tecnique than turning to the left.
For the ladies: Remember to go your third step on the spot while turning, bring your under arm in front of your chest and focus the hole time with your upper body on the upper body of your partner.
For the guys: Respect the line of the lady and go from one side to the other like “crossing the street”. Let your left hand on 2 on the back of the lady and slide the hand till you have her right hand.
