Re: quickstep counting

I think that to suggest bigger steps in the Quickstep is wrong. It can give an inexperienced dancer the wrong impression. For instance the person on the inside of a turn should know that person must take a smaller step than the person on the outside of the turn. To do it that way will ensure that person on the inside does not arrive before their partner. Telling somebody to take bigger steps is not going to help.Something else according to one of the greats, Marcus. We very rarely use the center of our heel. We should use either to the left side of our heel or the right side but not the center. Because we never should step dead square to our front. The same applies to the toe area of our foot. Wonderful thing this Inter- net.
