Due to the difﬁculty of creating an effect of great movement when starting from a static position at the beginning of a choreography, it is advisable to begin with a preparation step, that is a step which prepares the movement of the dancer in the ﬁrst figure.
This is generally accompanied by a slight Wind Up action which will be followed by the opportune rotation in the first figure.
The Preparation Step increases the body weight projection and permits a better Swing action.

“In this case but also in general for a“simple step” (forward or backward) is necessary to respect the principles of the Centre Balance and Recovery positions which are obtained synchronizing the overbalancing of the body, the control from the standing leg and the swing of the free leg. For the Backward step is also important to use the Preparation Phase (as described in the Drive Action).
