left forward right up left back a tiny amount right back shift weight to the left foot shift back to the right foot left back shift wieght to the right foot.

Men always start on the LEFT FOOT.
The music beats are on the whole numbers the "and" steps fall between the beat!
Staying with the music beat is ESSENTIAL! Never dance off beat its much better to stop and start back on beat!
No giant steps..all are smooth and small.
The five and six beat are also called "Back Step" but they are done in a smooth manner - never allow your Butt to rock back past your heals.
Never dance with your legs bowed out and feet spread apart or everyone will think you have a dump in your britches...
