During the Covid-19 Pandemic, a number of top coaches gave digital lectures on Zoom covering various technical aspects of Ballroom and Latin dancing.

Even though most ballrooms around the world were closed, it was a way to continue dance education and training.

In this hour-long lecture, Anna Mikhed goes into considerable detail regarding the various aspects of partnering connection in the ballroom dances. Sadly, she cannot demonstrate the principles with the help of a partner, but the information will be valuable to any intermediate or advanced dancer.

Anna is an internationally renowned competitor, adjudicator, and dance coach holding such titles as Belarus National Standard Champion as well as the Professional Rising Star Champion at the UK Open and British Open Championships.

Note that some of the figures and technique mentioned, including the Telespin, Hinge, Quick Telemark and others, are advanced step patterns only practiced by competitive dancers at the highest level. The information in this lecture may be of limited value to beginners, but it does cover some basic actions and will be useful for anyone with intermediate or higher level training.
