The Back Corte, while less expressive in the International style than its cousin in the American Smooth, is an iconic figure.

Many social dancers struggle with knowing how to include the Back Corte into alternate figures, and as a result use it only after a Closed Promenade. It's actually a lovely ending to several other figures. We explore using it after a Natural Twist Turn, after Left Foot and Right Foot Rocks, and after a Natural Promenade Turn. We conclude the workshop with a look at the Fallaway Promenade and how to end it with a Pivot for interesting dynamics. Recorded during a Kinvillage Intermediate group class.
