Footwork Variation of the Fortnight #69!

This fortnight’s variation is Syncopated Scoots!

Who doesn’t love a bit of synco…..pation!

Complex rhythms add interest and texture to your dancing! It’s well worth spending a bit of time trying out syncopations to get your body used to thinking outside the basic footwork pattern. (This variation was inspired by the lovely Alba Mengual and Gas Fernandez)
