Hands on shoulders

Tracy Wicklund
Spotting is necessary for all kinds of turns in dance. By spotting, or keeping your eyes fixated on a single spot, you will be able to complete several rotations without becoming dizzy.

Practice spotting while turning slowly in place. Find an object in the distance to spot, such as a picture or a fixture on the wall. Some dancers prefer to use a piece of black tape or a sticky note. Place your hands on your shoulders and fix your eyes on the spot.
