How to Lead Triple Steps

Ali and Katja show how to lead and follow triple steps in side by side position.

Notes:
- Leaders to lead a triple step in side by side position make sure that you lean slightly in the direction you want to go as well as showing your follower with your whole body the tension release.
- Leaders you can help your follower feel the triple steps by angling your body slightly towards her and away from her depending on which leg your are starting the triple step on.
- Followers make sure that you respond to your leaders tension release with your whole body.

Attention:
- A lot of times in swing dancing you will be performing figure that the leader and the follower already know. In this case however it’s up to the leader to decide how many triple steps he does at a time and for the follower to feel those changes.

10-count Swing out with footwork variation at the end

Ali and Katja show a swing out variation with a triple triple triple step at the end.

First Ali and Katja from Germany demonstrate this 10-count swing out variation – with an extra triple step on the right for the leaders and on the left for the followers. The move is then explained in detail.

This is an easy intermediate Swing out variation that helps you to build a more open mindset when it comes to swing outs – they don’t always have to be 8 counts.

Leaders, remember to slide on the right very clearly to make it easier to the followers to follow.

Basic 6-count moves with different rhythms

Peter Strom and Stacia teach the basic 6-count rhythms: first groove-walking it (also known as the “slow” rhythm), and then adding the triple step.

The video starts with the basic 6-count but without triple steps. The “rock-step, slow, slow” rhythm in side-by-side position. This is also called the “groove walk” rhythm. When you add the triple step instead of the slow, you have the basic 6-count Lindy Hop rhythm.

The moves are: basic 6-count rhythm pattern, Basic step, Open position, Closed position, Change places (Side Pass), and Tuck Turn (from closed).

At the end of the video we replace the slows with triple steps!

Leaders and followers, make sure that you keep a bounce (pulse) going through your whole body when you do the triple steps; don’t just do them with your feet and have nothing happening with your body. Dance the triple step with your whole body.

*Side note: You don’t always have to dance the triple step version: if a song is quite fast for example you can dance the groove walk version (rock step, slow, slow).
