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)

This fortnight’s variation is The Pony!

A new twist on a modern classic!

You can take inspiration for footwork variations from just about anywhere. Here’s one based on a dance move that some might remember from the 1960s (or the 80s).
