Lesson 13: Behind the Back Change

Men: the only difference between a Behind-the-Back-Change and a Wrap is whether or not you release the hands. In the Behind-the-Back-Change, hand-to-hand contact is always maintained between the partners. For a different style, the woman's RH can be placed on the man's waist (as opposed to switching hands behind-the-back) and allowed to travel around the man for the duration of the turn. This is known as a wrap. At the end, the woman's LH is taken once again in the man's RH for a completed Wrap Turn.
