Now I'm gonna teach you the triplet step. Nice and easy, and this is a great exercise to do for young dancers across the floor. Starts out to the side, you're taking three steps moving forward, starting with the right, arms are pressing up and down. Step up on your toe, up on your left toe, and then down on your right, you're gonna pick up that left leg, then you reverse that same thing to the left. Up, up, down. It seems easy, but it can be a little bit tricky with the up, up, down, up, up, down. Let me do it going directly towards you. And we go, up, up, down, and up, up, down. It's a triplet step. Also to create style you can see I'm doing a nice shoulder action. So shoulders are moving, shoulders are moving. I'm gonna make a full circle down so you can see how it travels nicely. And up up down, and up up down. Really point those feet and get up on your toes, now a little faster, you can use different arms, traveling, arms, five, six, seven, eight. And those are triplet steps.
