Finding a nice Discofox wedding song is a good start. But how do you actually dance Discofox? As with any dance, it is crucial with Discofox to first master the basic step safely.

The good news: The basic Discofox step is easy to learn ๐Ÿ˜ - even for absolute beginners. And how?

He will also explain the correct Discofox dance posture so that your wedding dance looks really nice and relaxed.

The basic Discofox step is the basis for your wedding dance.

The basic Discofox step consists of two steps for both partners and then an unloaded placing of the foot, the so-called tap.

The Movement sequence for men ๐Ÿคต looks like this:
1st step with left.
2nd step with right.
3. Left tap.

The Movement sequence for the lady ๐Ÿ‘ฐ works in a very similar way:
1st step with right.
2nd step with left.
3. Right tap.

Two steps and one tap: The basic step in the Discofox is so easy!

So the gentleman always starts with the left foot, the lady with the right foot. It doesn't matter in which direction the steps are danced.

At the beginning, however, we recommend that you always do it first alternately back and forth ๐Ÿ” to dance. The groom starts with the left foot forward, the bride accordingly with the right foot backwards.

After the tap, the gentleman walks backwards with his left foot while the lady dances forwards with her right foot.

Wedding couples should pay attention to the Basic step to dance as small as possible. Not only does it look nicer, it also makes it much easier for the bride to dance in the wedding dress later on.
