to dance them at your optimal level.
You will be familiarized with abbreviations, chart headings, definitions for sway, CBM, CBMP, pivots, pivoting actions, rise and fall, footwork, beat value, timing, tempo, and all the other details that will enable you to discuss dance technique from a more informed perspective.
