5 TYPES OF PARTNERS

Before you begin to list the types of partners, it is worth mentioning that they are based on the General features that have been seen, watching the behavior of dancers on the dance floor. These types are not innate characteristics of a particular person, and depend on the presence or absence of dance techniques. Thus, it can be perceived as the ability or inability to follow the conduct of the partner, which is acquired with experience (Perhaps You are interested in the article “How to learn to follow the conduct of a partner in dance?”).

Well, let’s go…

5 types of partners:

Iron lady
This type of partners is not conducted. All she does is maintain a very rigid frame that allows her to feel the interaction but not follow the lead. Such partners require very strong management. Dance with the teammates – it’s like having arm wrestling.

5 types of partners

Prophetess
This is a very skillful type of partner. They can be confused with Natural or Ideal partners (described below). Here’s how to distinguish them:

They will sometimes finish the movement before the partner actually finishes it.
If the partner makes a move that they cannot predict, they will stop or do something of their own instead of following the lead.
Individualist
These are partners who do on the dance floor what they want. They don’t follow the partner and usually use a crazy amount of styling. The problem with Individualists is that they do not give mercy to their styling in the dance and it is absolutely impossible to lead them. This is an unpleasant experience for any partner.

5 types of partners

Natural
These are ladies who understand on the dance floor what their partner wants from them. They wait for the reference to understand what the partner wants and then perform it. It’s light and it’s always nice to dance. It is a kind of partners who very quickly pass from the level of the beginner to the advanced. However, Natural is good as long as the partner is dancing with them, and if you let her go to the footwork, she will stand rooted to the spot.

Ideal partner
This is an accomplished partner. It’s like Natural doping. When she dances, she maintains interaction; she connects with a partner with whom she dances as one, she enjoys and plays with music, she is able to both follow the lead and be independent. Thus, if the partner ever lets her go, she will dance the footwork perfectly and have fun.
