I love this beginning for the titanic step.
For the guys:
- The point is to block the lady with your left hand on her left shoulder on 2. First you lead the elastic on 1 and on 2 you put your left hand on her left shoulder. Normally the ladies go with the left hand up dancing the elastic and you have to avoid it.
- On 3 you will be on the other side and then lead the lady two steps backwards openig to your right.
For the ladies: I like the styling opening with your right hand to the right, because you move in this direction. Look before you stretch your arm because at the party we don’t have enough space and you can hit other dancers.
