This is hard, even for an advanced step. We advise you to be patient with it, and kind both to yourself and your partner.

One of our favorite singers of the modern day.

00:05
This is a really fun one.
00:19
So that was not teaching.
It was just demonstrating, which we do in class too.
00:22
We show it first.
00:23
Show it one more time and then he’ll explain
the magic behind it.
00:31
And so, for the followers, there’s this moment of flying.
00:33
N: Yeah, it's really fun.
D: Really fun.
00:34
Hard on the leaders, wonderful for the followers;
exactly the way it’s supposed to be.
00:41
So leaders, I’m going to show this step and
I want you to ignore the beginning.
00:47
So there’s this beginning, ignore that.
There’s this ignore that.
00:52
There’s this, ignore that.
00:53
Right here, I’m on my left foot,
she’s on her right foot.
00:59
That’s the sit that we just taught.
01:02
So there’s this thing that happens
in front of the sit.
01:04
So, before, you step side to the outside,
now you’re stepping on the inside.
01:11
Before, you stepped here
with your left foot past her foot…
01:17
..or from this angle, actually better, here
with your left foot past her foot.
01:20
And now, leaders are pivoting, and, followers,
you’re stepping in a circle around them.
01:26
And the leaders: you see my left foot is
going inside, past her right foot.
01:30
My left foot is going inside.
01:32
And then, once we’re there, and in slow motion,
basically what happens is…
01:37
..I’m just going to pivot on my left foot,
until all of a sudden…
01:42
..I’m in the exact same position
that I would have been before.
01:45
We open out. We sit.
01:51
So, the fundamental idea is that the side step changes…
01:56
..It changes from this,
where you’re going outside her..
02:00
..to this, where you’re taking her outside you.
02:03
But you need to end in that same final position
so we have a spin so that you end up outside.
02:10
He makes it sound really easy, doesn’t he?
02:12
Yes.
02:19
And now, as you do that, you’ll see I cheat with right foot.
02:24
So, if I do it without her, so you can see the feet…
02:27
..we’ve got this, I come up,...
02:30
...and you see how I put my right foot down
to stabilize as I pivot?
02:34
And then I go back.
02:35
So, really, you’re only doing a quarter turn on one foot...
02:39
..and then you’re putting your right foot down
to stabilize and then go back.
02:42
For the followers, as you do this, I want you to think…
02:48
..and this is actually true for the leader.
02:49
I want you both, I want you both to think, that, as you do this,
you help get the lady around on that first side step.
02:56
So that first side step actually is half the turn.
03:00
It’s one of those great steps where there’s
half a turn from the first side step…
03:04
..there’s a quarter of a turn where you’re actually
pivoting on one foot, for the leader…
03:07
..and then there’s another quarter turn
where the leader pivots on both feet.
03:12
So, for the leaders, you don’t need incredible balance…
03:15
..but for this one brief split second of quarter turn,
as long as you have the first side step be larger.
03:22
So, for the followers, notice – so I’m going to over lead her...
03:24
I’m going to say "we’re going around",
but she also has to be willing to take a big side step there.
03:31
And then we can, you know, get a fair amount around.
03:33
Should we do it again?
03:44
That was cool.
