### PROGRESSIVE SIDE STEP

Man

The Progressive Side Step might be termed a quickening of the Walk in which the second step is taken sideways. This figure can be taken in any forward direction, and should tend to curve slightly to the L.

1. LF forward, across the body.
2. RF to the side and slightly back.* (The ball of the RF should be level with the L instep.)

* See note on page 231.

1. LF forward, across the body.

Contrary Body Movement Position. Steps 1 and 3 are in CBMP. Footwork. 1. H. 2. IE of foot. 3. H.

General Notes. Although the man’s 2nd step is to the side and slightly back in relation to the body, it will progress further along the LOD than the LF if the figure is turned. This step should be placed sharply, using the inside edge of the foot.

One or three walking steps should be used before the Progressive Side Step is repeated.
