Football: The Dance of Life!

Michelle AlvesSenior Writer ISeptember 20, 2008

How similar is football to dancing? Can you mix them  both? What happens when you do?

 

 

FREESTYLE  - Ad lib dance movements with no fixed structure. Danced without touching partner to a variety of music styles

 

 

 

Pasa Doble – Also know as the battle of feet. It  is modeled after the sound, drama, and movement of the Spanish bullfight. Paso doble means "two step" in Spanish.

 

Seems like a pretty painful dance to me!

 

 

 

Contemporary  A blend of styles that expresses the music it is being danced to.

 

 

 

 

 

 

TWO-STEP - The Two-Step is a simple dance, more or less double quick march with a skip in each step done as rapidly as a couple can go

 

 

SAMBA - The style is to bounce steadily and smoothly in 2/4 meter

 

 

 

SALSA  -   Is bit like groovy walking three paces at a time with a pause thrown in. Walk like that to time and you’re dancing salsa

 

 

 

 

And Finally...

 

Unexplainable movement - Refers to movement that some might classify as dancing, but would leave most speechless.
