Leading the difference between a rock-step and a front-step for the follower

Patrick and Natasha show how to lead the difference between a rock-step and a front-step for the follower.

Leaders: by moving slightly away from the follower on the last triple step of any move, you will set the follower up to do a front-step thereafter. Moving slightly toward the follower on the last triple step of a move will set up a rock-step for the follower.

This will make the flow of the dance much smoother and the follower will get a small “heads up” about whether she is likely to be led in a front-step or rock-step next.

This way you can lead the difference comfortably between leading the follower to start with a rock-step (also known as leading in on 2), or leading the follower to take a front-step on count 1 (also known as leading in on 1).
