Section 2: Dance Positions
The positional relationship of the torso between the man and the woman. The direction of movement (forward or back) and the position of the feet can help establish the position. The man and woman may not necessarily be in the same position. And the couple may be in either parallel or the cross system. The Dance Position is extremely important in that the man established a dance position for every step, generally establishing the position before the feet are moved, or quickly thereafter the feet start moving.
