Es rápido, asi que use pasos ligeros y transfiere unicamente el peso necesario para que se levante el otro pie. Entre los pasos de balanceado, muevese rapidamente los pies para completar el triple paso. Se puede contar 1, 2 (para el paso básico), despues cha- cha- cha (para el triple paso).

In this lesson you will do a rock step—a forward or backward step that takes your weight just slightly, rocking you back where you started. It is fast, so stay light on your feet and transfer only enough weight to enable lifting the opposite foot. In between rock steps, get those feet moving quickly to complete the triple step. You can count 1, 2 (for the rock step) then cha- cha- cha (for the triple step).
