Coasters

Coaster steps are a way to individualize your dancing; either partner may dance any of these coasters as part of any pattern. They all consist of three steps syncopated over two beats, generally with a time value of half-half-whole, (this, too, may be varied to express the individual's personal style.) The following coasters are recommended.

  • Side-together-side
  • Side-together-forward (lady)
  • Side-together-back (man)
  • Behind-side-side ("Sailor Shuffle"--man or lady)
  • Back-forward-back ("Push" styling)
  • In place-in place-in place (man)
  • Back-together-forward (lady)
