Waltz - The Box Step

The Box Step is a very simple Waltz step lasting 6 beats and as the name would imply the steps within those 6 beats trace the shape of a box or square. The first 3 beats of the Box Step can be the same as either the Left Foot Closed Change or the Right Foot Closed Change.

Below is an animation of the basic Box Step pattern in time to a slow Waltz beat and starting with the Left Foot Closed Change. This in effect means your 'box shape' is danced clockwise. If you start the Box Step with the Right Foot Closed Change your 'box shape' is danced anti-clockwise. Which foots 'Closed Change' you start with is up to you but can be dictated by which foot you finished your previous step on.
