There are literally dozens of methods on how to use your arms during partner work styling.  Some hands touch the body, caressing and/or threading over it, while others just tend to do it a bit too lovingly that it ought to be done privately! Then there’s also the twisted forearms and spread out fingers to make the powerful and blooming but unfortunately also greatly contributes to very disconnected, unstable and erratic movements especially if the student is not given proper instruction when and when not to use them during partner work.  Finally, there are the ones that look like the arms/hands calmly rolls through the body, allowing the follower to use it more often as it not so “out there,” but at the same time it can suddenly change to a powerful movement that it cuts through space with absolute precision—Rolling and Whipping.


Rolling and Whipping are probably the two misunderstood movements, though they are far more natural (if not more practical for daily use) than twisting the arms or touching the body for styling.  Yet done correctly, they are extremely efficient and the range/presentation of movements is vast. Participants in this workshop will learn to:


  • Match your arm/hand styling figures with the rest of your partner work in absolute coordination that you can have the best of both worlds – styling and following – without compromise!
  • To roll out the arms earn to roll your hands throughout your body as it were pieces of clothing that tail the body when it moves naturally, except it’s your own arms doing the job!  Transform your entire body like a whip that can send energy to one or both arms with the speed of lightning.  Like rolling the arms, this method is both simple yet complex in applications.
  • Use your styling figures to commonly used moves that allow you to use these styling figures without fail
  • Train gradually in accurate manner, minimizing errors and allowing you and retain the movements for practical use, and practice with some UnitedSalseros trained student/dancer/performer/instructor who will present and volunteering their time in helping you to get comfortable in applying your styling figures!
  •  Alternate power with subtlety, giving your movements the opportunity to breathe and look absolutely effortless and learn advanced concepts of centering, relaxation, contraction, releases, lines, timing without running out of time, etc., taking your styling to greater artistic depths
