T-Step – Dance Tutorials With Smilin
(Episode 01) Electro Swing Academy

Here comes the first episode of the Electro Swing Academy’s dance tutorial series. Smilin will teach you the “T-Step” today and will walk you through all 10 dance moves that we will be releasing over the next few weeks.

1. Start position: stand shoulders wide in a „V“

2. Bend your right leg while the foot of the other leg turns right

3. Put your left heel inside while the right foot taps to the side

4. Repeat step 2

Variation: you can also tap your foot in front or behind of you, or instead of tapping you can kick

Important: your tapping/kicking foot is always the free leg

We’ll post two videos a week and you can watch the tutorials on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok.

Next dance move: Stub Out
