  1. At 1:00, you start showing the basic foot movement, but don’t mention one thing about the pulse that you are demonstrating, which is the downfall of many beginner dancers. They are just taught to walk back and forth with absolutely no rhythmic feeling.

  2. Sorry Hannah……………..I posted my comment in the wrong place.
