VIDEO: HOW TO LONGBOARD DANCE



HOW TO cross step

THE FOUNDATION OF LONGBOARD DANCING

  1. Stand in your regular stance.
  2. Move you front foot back towards your back foot and keep your knees bent!
  3. Slowly, bring your back foot out and around your front foot.
  4. Then, slowly bring your other foot back and around in front of your other foot.
  5. Open up your stance again by bringing your back foot back into your regular stance.
  6. Bonus tip: try it on the grass and really exaggerate your leg movements.

HOW TO pirouette

  1. Stand in your regular stance.
  2. Bring your front foot back a little bit.
  3. Twist your front foot slightly, in the direction you are going to spin.
  4. Bend your legs and wind up your shoulders.
  5. Start turning and decompress your legs (taking weight off your feet a bit!)
  6. Plant your back foot on the board to stop your spin.
  7. Bonus tip: keep your eight centered on the board and try to decompress straight up!
