I don’t usually make videos for the blog, but this is one topic that needed a video to show what I was talking about.
In essence, this video is about that lack of consistency that many online instructional casino videos have when teaching turn patterns beyond the basic ones. Many instructors usually reference a basic figure (i.e. Enchufa, Vacila) but change it mid-figure to “fit” a certain turn pattern that they came up with. This ends up confusing anyone who is trying to learn casino because it makes it harder to understand the structure of the dance, how basic moves can be put together to create more complex ones, and increases the chance of miscommunication with your partner when you’re dancing.
I hope this helps, and do let me know if it did!
