What is a break in dance terminology?
I pulled this definition from ballroomdancers.com, but it applies to non-ballroom dances as well.
Break: A unit of two steps where the second step is taken in exactly the opposite direction from the first.
That description wasn't much, will. So maybe a few folks could chime in and help describe some of these breaks (just the ones I can think of -- there are others, I'm sure ) Just so you can get an idea what the definition actually means.
fifth position break
outside partner break
I was thinking mostly about Salsa when I asked this question. You know, "Break on one, break on two, three whatever..."
Try this link. Has some very good information. Including information on breaks. http://www.dancesport.com/articles/mambotim.html
