Step sequence for 5 step

Post by andnic »


I am sure I read here (cannot find it now) that for a five step approach the steps should be left, tightrope, left, tightrope, cross over is that correct..
If correct how left should the 1st and 3rd steps be?

Therefore, a five step approach for a right handers is as follows:

step (left foot) -normal step forward with the left foot
balance beam step (right foot)
short, quick step (left foot) - normal step forward with the left foot
short, quick balance beam step (right foot)
cross over slide step (left foot)
P.S -sorry about the barefeet, I live in Kentucky!
