About the lesson:


The Dandy, is an explosive step requiring both leader and follower to be in control of both their partner and their aesthetics. But when it hits the break in the music, everyone involved feels incredibly cool. For the follower, an Irene Thomas wrapped-up quick stop. For the leader, an unexpected footwork combination into a fast circle slide. A true fanboy/fangirl move, its a combination of three dancers whose inventiveness and aesthetics we greatly admire — David Rehm, Randy Maestretti, and Irene Thomas.
