What is Secrets Of Improvisation?
Learning steps means learning vocabulary. But knowing great words doesn't mean being able to tell a great story. You need to know how to tell fascinating stories with your steps. Understand the most important thing about dancing: Connecting your dance to the music. Enter the mysterious world of improvisation!
How is music structured? How do you combine your steps so they fit to the music? How do you anticipate breaks? And what can followers do on their own (without back leading of course)? The secret is out! Understand this crucial aspect of dance. Learn to make your steps fit the music and enjoy a new dimension in your dancing. This will probably be your most important and influencing instructional DVD.
The content of this DVD is identically equal to the famous video WOS VHS #9 “Secrets of Improvisation”. To really benefit from this DVD you should have swing dance experience. You should be familiar with the foundation of swing dancing and the common standard moves. The DVD contains theoretical and practical parts. Because the emphasis of this DVD is connection to the music, the steps selected to demonstrate the concept are basic standard steps and are not broken down. (If you want more explanation of the basic steps, we can recommend other videos from the World of Swing series.)
