East Coast Swing – Secrets Of Improvisation

Learning steps means learning vocabulary. But knowing great words doesn’t mean being able to tell a great story. You need to know how to tell fascinating stories with your steps. Understand the most important thing about dancing: Connecting your dance to the music. Enter the mysterious world of improvisation! How is music structured? How do you combine your steps so they fit to the music? How do you anticipate breaks? And what can followers do on their own (without back-leading of course)? The secret is out! Understand this crucial aspect of dance. Learn to make your steps fit the music and enjoy a new dimension in your dancing. This will probably be your most important and influential instructional video. Marcus & Bärbl have been teaching classes and workshops in more than 15 countries all over the world. They were given the prestigious Feather Award in 1996 and 1997, and the International Dance Teacher Award in 2002.
