The Advanced program includes two calls based on the idea of Counter Rotate:
  • Box Counter Rotate
  • Split Counter Rotate
In this tutorial we will explore this idea and how it is applied in these two calls.

This tutorial starts with the basics and shows the way that these calls are most commonly used at Advanced. It also shows some more challenging examples, which are not usually used at Advanced, but which may help you understand the idea.

Do not feel that you need to go through the whole tutorial at once.

If you are just starting to learn Advanced, you may want to read only the first section for now. The first section provides an overview of the cases you will most frequently encounter in Advanced dancing. You can come back to review those pages or to read more later.
