Online Balboa Dance Lesson Video: Body Types
No two people are exactly alike. In this lesson Adam and Abigail teach the way they connect to different partners while social dancing. The breakdown includes a simple analysis of how different our body types can be, as well as a few techniques for both leaders and followers to achieve the best possible connection with every partner. The emphasis is on identifying and exploiting the differences for the best dance possible.
