  5. Haha yeah, that IS probably equivalent to the Rumba walks....looks easy as a piece of cake but will probably be practicing it for the rest of your life.....hmmm, yes then I guess I'll jump on the band-wagon to hate that step hehe :)

    Possibly, if it doesn't confuse me too much when looking for my posts. Do you think I should keep it? :)

    It's a step taken/danced outside partner.

    It actually was never intended to be a step. The "pinwheel" was to be danced as you see it, but opened (with the arms out). When teaching it, students would have a difficult time dancing completely behind the partner. The tap of the front partner's shoulder was a teaching technique to help the student to make sure that he/she was completely in position. After one learns the movement, the tap should be dropped. Unfortunately, well, we know the catastrophe that happens...... :D :confused: :doh:

    samba : voltas - due to change in rhythm
    rumba: cuban rocks - dunno why, probably because it seems too obvious a demonstration of hip movement.
