Transcript

Henri:Hi, guys. It's Henri and Ashlé. We're going to show you our last video of the reggaeton series; it's partner work in reggaeton. So, we will demonstrate for you these two different moves, and then we're going to break it down for you.

So, it goes like this, in closed position, it goes one, two, three, and four, and five, six, seven, and eight. One more time. And one, two, three, and four, five, six, seven, and eight.

And the second move is, from the back. You go back, forward and around. And back, forward, around. Good?

Ashlé:Great. Let's break that down, to make it not scary and awkward. In the beginning of our series, we showed you the basic step, basic movement, and lower body isolation. So, that's what we're incorporating here. Basically, you're just going find each other. Grab the girl. Now, don't make it too awkward. If you're right in front of each other, you're not going to be able to move. Right? That's not the step.

Henri:You have to stand close to each other. It's mostly about connection with the right side of your body, to the right side of her body. In this case, because reggaeton is a laid-back dance, then you are connected more on the hip. So, you're not connected so much on the upper body, because here, we're going to try to move the hips around. Yes? It's about feeling that connection. And, guys, make sure you hold the ladies so you can help them figure out which way you're going. You have to be clear with your movements, as well.

Ashlé:And you want to stay close. hat way your thighs, your inner thighs are in contact, so that way he can lead you around. So, with the first action, we're going to go to the back, and Henri's going to go forward. So, you'll go back, forward, and all the way back. Then, Henri goes forward, and back, and all the way forward. So, if we were doing that standing side by side, Henri would be going forward as I'm going back, back, and all the way, and back, and all the way.

Henri:Let's show you this way, so you can see it more clear. So, we're facing each other. So, we're facing each other, then when I go forward, she goes back, and goes, and do do do. And it goes forward, and back and do do do do. Yes, so that would be the clear version of what we're doing together. But with a connection, it's really, really fun.

Ashlé:It's perfectly fine, if you don't want to connect that closely with your partner. You can do the same movement, you just watch each other. It's like a mirror and you just do the opposition. Now, another option we're going to give you is facing back to chest.

Henri:Now, in this case, the guys will be doing the same movement as the ladies, so instead of back, we're going to start forward. The thing I would recommend to use is holding hands, so you can connect. Your right hand can be on the ladies' waist or hip, so that they can feel your movement. Okay?

Ashlé: Girls, you can put your hand right on your guys' hand here, you can put it on your head, you can reach around your chest, you can move it around. Whatever you want to do to make it sexy.

Henri:Okay. So, here we go. We're going to go back on the one, then forward, and now circle to the left. And forward to the right, back on the left, and circle to the right. So, it goes back, and forward, and circle. And back, and forward, and circle.

Ashlé:That's a friendly move. You can't be afraid of the person behind you on that one. So, if you're afraid of the contact then go for the facing forward. If not, then turn right around and try it that way.

Henri: Yeah. So, Whatever floats your boat, you will do.

Ashlé:We'll try it with music.

Henri:Dancing with the music. First, we're going to try it facing together. From the diagonal, you connect with your lady. And you connect. And we go, and one, two, three, up, and hip. Again. And forward, back, hip. Let's do it one more time. And one, two, hip.

Ashlé:You can also slow it down. And front, and all the way.

Henri:Yes.

Ashlé:And now, facing same direction.

Henri:So, we go back, back, forward, and around. Back, forward, and around. To the right, and to the left. Now, we can slow it down, too. Hip, hip, other side and back, and forward, hip.

Ashlé:So, there you have the finishing series in our reggaeton section, that is partner work. You can take what we've given you and make a variety of things from that, but that's just what we chose to show you today.

Henri:Yes. I hope you enjoyed it, and keep watching the rest of our videos.
