Back Hand Change


What a classic! I think you could show anyone on the street this video and ask ‘what style are they dancing?’ and they would rightly guess rock ‘n roll. It’s the quintessential move for this style of dance.

It’s made up of:

  • Underarm Turn
  • Leader’s Turn (with the leader’s arms low, changing behind their back)
  • Link Step (from the Yoyo pattern)

 

The Leader’s Steps


In this video we are referring to the leader’s steps when we describe the gentlemen’s steps.

The famous ‘Banana Hands’ technique is the perfect way to practise any move that includes a hand change action. Not only in your Rock ‘n Roll but also Salsa, Cha Cha, Rumba, Bachata and more!

 

 

And no… you don’t have to use a banana it’s just what I had handy at the time. Perhaps a pen or your phone could work?

 

The Follower’s Steps


In this video we are referring to the follower’s steps when we describe the lady’s steps.
