Clear, precise and logical description of all common basic figures in the five Latin dances (Samba, Cha Cha, Rumba, Paso Doble and Jive) in tabular form. In addition, there is an explanation of the technical principles and lists of possible combinations of figures. The "Laird Technique" is used by many organizations as a training material for dance teachers and coaches. This 8th edition of the Laird Technique of Latin Dancing is the first major revision since 2014. It is a definite 'must have' for anyone training candidates for IDTA Professional Examinations and for candidates studying this technique. The revision includes new charted figures, with the deletion or amendment of some other figures. There are also some technical changes and new information given. Repetitive information has been reduced and a clearer format presented in some areas. Please note: Addendum to the Laird Technique of Latin Dancing by Walter Laird (2022) Rumba: Page 55: Runaway Alemana. Chart as man. Body Turn for steps 15-16 should state 1/4 to L (not 1/4 to R). Page 62: Syncopated Open Hip Twist. Chart as lady. Beat Value for step 4 should state 2 (not 4.1).
