Bending and Sending Backward Steps


Moving backwards in dances such as Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, and Viennese Waltz can be challenging. So we decided to help you make it easier on yourself! This video teaches you how to walk back more efficiently so you don't get your toes stepped on. We also teach you how to fly across the room with power and grace while your moving backwards. Learn to Bend and Send so you can keep up with even the highest skilled dancers!

Taught by Brett Granstrom from Spark Up Dance LLC.
