Ricardo's Golden Rule of Swing: When in doubt...turn

One thing that is very important for men when dancing the Swing is to keep going when you mess up. This will not only build your confidence on the dance floor, but your partner will also think you’re a great dancer! Ricardo Salazar, dance instructor for the Ballroom Dance Kit, suggests that his Golden Rule of Swing be implemented in awkward dance situations. Simply stated, the Golden Rule is “When in doubt, turn!” For example, men, if you find your partner doing a step that you don’t know, simply turn! It looks great and she’ll think you’re a fantastic dancer. Ladies, it is important that you remain facing your partner while dancing. If he begins turning, just continue stepping to the beat until he turns back to face you.
