Guide To Basic Floorcraft

The Swungover* Guide to Basic Floorcraft (swing dance)
Video of the Week #004

The dance floor can sometimes get a little crowded so it's always a good idea to be aware of the other dancers and how much space you have / can take up and how you can try and "minimise" bumping into people.

Here's a great video from the guys at Swungover (Bobby White & Annabel Truesdell Quisao) with some really useful tips on floorcraft. Music is by the Mint Julep Jazz Band.
