How to Do Power Stepping in Step Dance

Learn how to do power stepping from choreographer Victor Sho in this Howcast step dance video.


Hi, my name is Victor Shell, and I'm going to show you how to do backward and forward movement in strolling. So there's different kinds of strolls you can do in power stepping. They have the one that you go side to side, and there's one that you definitely use when moving forward and backward, that's easier to do. Some people call it drilling, but it's still under the form of strolling.

Basically what you want to do is understand that there's always going to be one leg that's hiked up and one leg that's going to be doing the stomp. Hiked up, stomp. This leg goes back down, so it can hike up again. Stomp. This leg goes back down so it can hike up again. Stomp. You can see, naturally, I'm moving forward, and you can use the same thing to move backward.

This is another form of strolling and this is what you can definitely use to move forward and backward. Are there are things in stepping' that you can use to move forward and backward? Yes, 'cause there's tons of transitional moves, but this is definitely one of the easiest.

So I'm going to give you a demonstration of moving forward and backward, using strolling, and incorporate different arm movements, side to side strolling. You can see how I move with power stepping. Five, six, here we go, five, six, seven, hey. And that's how you move forward and backward.
