This lesson teaches a step which is based on the quick turns in classic Whitey's film clips, especially William Downes and Francis 'Mickey' Jones, followed later by Frankie Manning and Ann Johnson, in Duke Ellington's soundie, Hot Chocolates. Breakdown includes timing and footwork details, crucial connection and body-positioning tips, important bad habits to avoid, a full step-by-step walk-through that takes you through every component of the step, advice for cleanly getting in and out, and multiple turn options.
