Step of the Week: Jazz Box (or Box Step)


Step count:
4 counts (1-2-3-4)

Cross/step foot A over foot B (weight moves from B to A), step backward on foot B, step foot A to the A side, step forward on foot B (back to original position).
Example: cross right over left, step backward on left, step right to right side, step forward on left

Dances featuring this move:

Tips for this move:
Picture a box on the floor where your left foot (this is for a right box step) is in the top left corner, then alternating R-L-R, move counter clockwise around the box stepping on each corner. Your legs will look “tangled up” at first, but you’re doing it right!
