Dear Gaby
An advice column for dancers
Tip from Gaby
Rhythm dancing
A question many students ask is what do I do with my arms? Well, if you’re not in closed dance position with your arms up, one of my favorite arm movements is the way you would beat on a drum, okay an air drum! However, it’s not just about using the arms on their own , if you put your back into it, your whole body will start to get engaged. Arms without use of your back tend to feel and look a little disjointed.
Thank you to David Woodbury for this reminder on the use of arms.
To Dance is to Live
Thank You,
Gabriela Young
