There are three steps, which we are doing the hole time while dancing zouk: basic step, sidestep (lateral, half a turn to the front) and the normal zouk turns. Today we learn the sidestep or lateral.

The beginning is lke the cross step. After the first three steps, guys go to the right and the bring the ladies to the left. You let your right hand slide till you have the left hand of the lady in your hand. Steps for the guys: we are doing today the steps on the line just to be confident about the leading. Next week we will learn another possibility for your steps.

For the ladies: the steps are the same as the last week but it’s very important to turn your upper body always to the guy.

Here you can see some more informations (subtitles in English).

See you!
