Basic Movement


A series of small steps forward or back danced in Closed or Contact Position, each step no longer than the dancer's foot and taking one beat of music. The weight changes are danced with strong pressure into the ball of foot with heel just off, or lightly in contact with the floor. Ball of foot contact with the floor is released on each step although the toe is not raised.

Man will normally commence with RF (lady LF) and dance four to eight Basic Movements ( etc). No turn, or gradual turn of up to a 1/4 to R or L may be used over four steps.

Basic Movement is danced in place of Sur Place and is used as a link between figures, to achieve a desired alignment and to facilitate correct phrasing.
