Albert Tailleur's Two-Step Lesson Posted on SNC Web Site
Lesson that was given at SNC on June 18
Albert Tailleur 
UCWDC champion Albert Tailleur explained the differance between a  beginner and advanced dancer, explained how spotting for the leads is facing the follow instead of down line, and showed us all how "the duck" is a mere illusion.  His assistant is Jennifer Jeffries, Chicagoland Dance Festival Event Director.  Albert will be on staff as an instructor at CDF next month.
 To help you remember that fantastic lesson, the lesson has been posted on our web site.posted the lesson on our web site.
