Lead Forward Steps. The Lead has very few steps that they can really show off in, this is the primary step for that to happen. This step is looked upon as the telltale sign that the Lead has studied, knows what they’re doing, and knows how to execute these things. Furthermore, it’s the step by which they are judged, and yes they are judged. So it’s important for the Lead to get this step right.
There are several different methodologies for the Lead to study how to take a Forward step. First and foremost is stepping Heel-To-Toe. Secondly, stepping Toe-To-Heel. And lastly, Sole-to-the-Floor. All of these methods are covered in the Lead’s Foundation on Tango Topics, see the link below.« Back to Glossary Index
