The scale of whether your ballroom dance skills are excellent or whether they need work, often lies in how well your body is communicating to not only your dance partner but to your audience as well. Being able to communicate to your dance partner so that your bodies connect is essential; without it, you’re not dancing your just stepping clumsily over your partner’s feet.
The ballroom dancer that is able to successfully communicate with their body, is the ballroom dancer that we all cannot take our eyes off of. Which means mastering how to communicate with your body is key to gaining the judges attention on a dance floor full of others all competing for the spotlight.
Here is a quick video I stumbled upon featuring Michael Malitowski & Joanna Leunis describing and displaying examples of how to communicate with your body via the Rumba. Enjoy!
