Concepts

Floorcraft: How to avoid collisions, recover from collisions, and look good at competitions.
Frame and Body Position Page. This page is to describe how to stand/place weight in ballroom dancing, the frames unique to each dance (5-point contact in waltz, the closeness of tango, the big space in rumba/cha-cha), and the idea of connection: how partners communicate via frame and why frame is just so important. Also should include a section describing the roles of the Leader and the Follower.
Lesson Efficiency. How to get the most in individual and group lessons.
Line of Dance. Description of Cardinal directions, how to move along LoD, dances that have LoD.

Apparel

Shoes. How to buy, what to buy, maintenance.

Competition

Pre-Competition: One Month Out, Two Weeks, right before. Forms, luggage, the importance of Practice!
