Introduction: A Newcomer level move.
Frame: Latin. Count: 4 beats. Continues from Basic, so start on the 2nd beat. Usage: Rumba, Cha-Cha.
Leaders and Followers: The exact same moves, simply mirrored.

Instructions (Leader Perspective)
We start in something called Hand-hold Position.
Upper Body: From frame, you slide your right arm down along the follower's left arm. At the same time, your left arm, still holding the follower's hand, comes down. With space between you and the follower, your hands should be around waist level. Arms are relaxed. Your hands are palm-up; follower's hands palm-down.
Lower Body: Feet shoulders-width apart. You should be parallel to the follower. Weight evenly distributed.

2. Pivoting on your right foot, you spin by bringing your left foot into lock position. Your right arm is pointed behind you at around 55 degrees of elevation. Your left arm is bent 90 degrees at the elbow, slightly ahead of your torso. You are holding onto the follower's hand.
3. Rock back onto your right foot. Get ready to spin back.
4. Pivoting on your right leg again, pivot back into Hand-hold Position. Weight is still on your right leg.
1. During the transition between Beat 4 and 1, shift your weight from your right leg to your left.

To complete another New Yorker, simply do the steps above, but with the opposite arms/legs.

Instructions (Follower Perspective)
With regards to Hand-hold Position, simply let the leader bring your arms down. Otherwise, your moves are the exactly the same as the leader's, only reversed.

Tips and Tricks
  • Hand-hold Position. In this position, there's a certain tension in the hands. That is, the follower's hands should not be limp and loose. Rather, they should be applying an outward force, like a "double karate-chop." Countering this force are the leader's hands. The purpose for this tension is to make the spin easier. Think of a door. You are the door. You would like to open and close smoothly. This requires a solid hinge. The force in the hands reinforces that hinge.
  • Spiderman. When doing the New Yorker, your not-holding-the-hand arm is up and out. So, what position should your fingers take. Do whatever you want, so long it looks good. But if you're stuck, do Spiderman! Like the UT LongHorn sign, but with your thumb sticking out.
  • Twirl. Regarding that not-holding-the-hand arm again, when bringing it from Hand-hold Position to its final position, don't just go directly from point A to point B like your arm's a bat that won't bend. Rather, bend at your elbow. For your right arm, do a full revolution of vertical counter-clockwise motion. For the left arm, do a full revolution of vertical clockwise motion.
  • Mirroring. The most critical aspect of the New Yorker is that you match your partner. That means, you're symmetrical. Your arms should be of the same angle of elevation (if your heights are very different, then that's just something you work past). Your holding hands should be directly in the line of symmetry, not shifted in favor of the leader or follower.
  • Spin. How does one spin quickly? When you move your non-pivoting leg, don't swing it in a semicircle. It's very hard to control and you introduce angular momentum. Rather, have it slide forward right next to your pivoting foot.
