Hello! My name is Nene Ortega. I'm a dance instructor at the Goddess' Store in Hollywood, Florida. In this clip, we're going to talk about the quick step. Quick step, very fun, light and fast. I'm going to show you the basic step and then, as you practice, you gain more speed but slowly we're going to explain how to do it. We have a preparation step for the quick step, okay? So, it's five, six, seven, eight, this will be the preparation step. So I'm going to go to the side and forward, I'm going to step, step, quick, quick. I'm going to do that again. So it's five, six, seven, eight, slow, quick, quick, slow, quick, quick, slow, quick, quick, slow, quick, quick. So, we have a slow, quick, quick, slow. That's how you count in the quick step. I'm going to do that again, five, six, seven, eight, slow, quick, quick, slow, quick, quick, slow, quick, quick, slow, quick, quick, slow. That's the quick step, that will be the basic. It's very fun and as any ballroom dancing you're going to have your hand on the side and with your partner you're going to hold your friend which is very important, okay? So, it's going to be slow and quick, quick, slow, quick, quick, slow, quick, quick, slow, quick, quick, slow, quick, quick, slow, quick, quick. Also, we have the other rhythm is the one, one, one, one where you do one, one, one, one. The lead is going to be the same, you wait for your partner and you have the body weight on the on one side and you change so you step and change, step and change, and then as we do faster, it's one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. This is the quick step basic. For you, Nene Ortega in Hollywood, Florida.
