Guide and Follow of Latin Dance
(I) Guidance: When guiding, men should move their hands and feet with their chest, waist, and back, so that women can feel the men’s guiding movement clearly.
As long as the above three elements are used for men’s body movements, women can naturally move. Even without holding hands, men can use their body kinetic energy to make women feel movements.
(2) Follow: Usually refers to the movement of a woman. The movement of a woman cannot be moved by herself. Instead, she must follow the guidance of a man to move.
When the lady follows, she moves backwards with her feet first, and then moves backwards with her body.
Guiding action can be said to be a kind of whole body guidance. Good guiding action can produce good contact and dancing posture.
