  1. Head Alignment: Keep your head aligned with your spine, avoiding tilting or leaning. This promotes balance and enhances the visual appeal of your dance.

  2. Shoulder Positioning: Relax your shoulders and keep them down. Tension in the shoulders can hinder movement fluidity. Maintain a lifted chest for an open and confident look.

  3. Spinal Alignment: Ensure your spine is straight, from the base of your neck to your tailbone. Engage your core muscles to provide stability and control during movements.

  4. Hip Placement: Align your hips with your spine, avoiding excessive tilting forward or backward. This alignment supports proper weight distribution and facilitates smooth transitions between steps.

  5. Foot and Leg Placement: Pay attention to the placement of your feet and legs. Whether in a turned-out or parallel position, proper alignment enhances technique and prevents strain on joints.

By focusing on posture and alignment, dancers lay the groundwork for fluid movements, improved balance, and an overall polished performance.
