When the dance requires an arm to be raised, the arm should be kept near the body and without raising the shoulder, the arm should be raised to the height of the breast. Allow the elbow to fold a little, keeping the arm in a rounded form. When lowering the arm, let the arm descend gently to its place.
When arms are to be raised alternately, when the first arm starts to descend the other arm must begin to rise, timing it well enough that the second reach its height as the other is in its place.
If both arms are to be raised at the same time, make sure to keep arms rounded. When lowering, start with the hands and let the arms gently descend.
