24.03.15. Advanced. Turn on the spot with the head to the side.


Here you can remember how to do the opening to the right with the head in the closed position:


Turning on the spot with head movements. Important things for the guys:

  • You go the hole time backwards and you open with your body to the left.
  • Use your both hands for the leading but remember, your leading comes from your upper body.
  • If you want to turn the lady with the head to the side, you will bring your left hand to her left shoulder when she has the head to her right side. Turn the lady and on 2 you will get her again an continue with the head movement.
  • You can end the move when the lady is with the head to the front. You bring her up.

Important things for the ladies:

  • Keep the contact with the hands of the guy.
  • If you are doing anything on the spot with your upper body and you are turning to the left, you will use the left leg as axis.
  • If the guy turns you with the head to the side, stay with the head to the side as log as the guy has his hand on your shoulder.
  • While turning take care of your left arm for not to hit your partner.

Have fun!
