Yup. In most scenes, beginning to intermediate dancers will just dance thru a break in the music, still doing their basic step.
I'm just beginning to hear the breaks and I'm trying to figure out where throw in a dramatic pause. How long do these breaks usually last (half a count or a full count?) and do they start and end on any specific count? Meaning, does the break happen on the 123 or 567? Does the break end on any specific count?
Or another way of phrasing the question: would i enter the break on a
123, dramatic pause, then resume on 567 if i'm dancing on1?
or is it 567, dramatic pause, then resuming on 123?
Hey, welcome to DF!
I think most breaks ( at least in songs that I can think of) usually are on the 1. And yes, they will last either a half or full count, but it's up to you as to when to restart as long as you can communicate it properly to your partner.
