• We need to be able to move while maintaining a stable base.
  • This is a starting point for more advanced footwork.
  • These are the most basic footwork patterns for moving in straight lines; left, right, forwards, back.
  • General principle: Don’t cross your feet as it makes the stance too narrow for a moment and you would be unstable.

Teaching Points:

Which ever direction we want to move in, we move the foot closest to that position first.
The other foot then follows to return the stance to the same width.

  • To move right, the right foot moves first.
  • To move left, the left foot moves first.
  • To move forwards, the front foot moves first.
  • To move backwards, the back foot moves first.
