Spinning Techniques

Anand, I know you gotta start moving your shoulders first, but still haven't mastered the right technique. Could you provide some tips to improve my turns. Thanks, Tanny

tanny,

there are some exercises - shoulder rolls, isolations, figure of eights.. which one needs to do get better. also the "shimmy" which is isolation forward and backward. that helps dramatically..

there is ladies styling video by a lady instructor called BURJU. she is very good. also try susana montero, candy mena, edie the salsa freak..these girls are good.. try ordering them on the net.. i know of one site its called www.salsafever.co.uk.. i think you can order from them..they have many videos to chose from and they deliver.. its very important for a girl to watch some ladies stylin video. try these..

also if you wish i could do some exercises with you about the basics. though i dont like to get into styling much, cause im the "moves" man

tanny,

there is a video posted in the download section about spinning techniques by Edie. It is very useful. Download it. However you need to make at least 25 posts on the forum before requesting access to that section

your friendly admin

3 main points to remember for spinning:

1. Spotting
2. Balance--which is maintained by keeping a straight posture
3. Small Steps--Not taking huge steps while doing cross body turns
