Handholds -

The handholds are the same from dance type to dance type, though the names may vary slightly. Though the first 2 holds shown below -- the closed hold and 2-hands hold -- are the most common, here are the others too so that you may know the language both for this course and for elsewhere.

Closed hold

2-hand hold

Cross-hands, right on top
