Cowtail-Step – Dance Tutorials With Smilin
(Episode 09) Electro Swing Academy

Here comes episode 09 of our Electro Swing Academy Dance Tutorial series. Today Smilin shows us the cowtail step and a slightly more difficult variation. She also has a tip to start with. Forget everyday life for a few moments and #KeepOnSmilin​! 😀 🔥 💃 🎩 🙌

1. Imagine doing a circle with your foot behind you

2. Whenever you start with the circle, your heel goes in

MORE DIFFICULT: imagine doing an „8“ with your foot, so your heel goes in twice: once when you start doing the 8 and also in the middle of the 8

TIP: you can practice with a chair, if you have problems at the beginning

Next Dance Move: Moonwalk
