    Jen and I have been asked to do a performance at a local benefit. Our instructor has cut some music ( Fastination, edited to 2 minutes) for us and is working with us doing some choreography. (He is even allowing us to do some silver!!) lol I am wanting to end the performance with something special... not the usual open break to dip. Any suggestions??

    The death drop always is a crowd pleaser...

    The floatee is a beautiful lift that's actually surprisingly safe and achievable by even beginner dancers - one of my favorite "first lifts" to teach. It also has a great waltz feel and looks beautiful with a gown. Spend a few lessons working with your instructor (never try and learn a lift without qualified supervision), but it can be a great way to end a performance.

    We already have a contra check in our little routine. Lift is not an option... my partner currently is nursing a back problem. I was thinking of a Runaround in alternate hold to an inside turn and then bow.

    Throwaway, same foot lunge line, spin the lady out and bow.
