Introduction: A Bronze level move for Waltz.
Frame: Standard. Count: 1-2-3
Leaders and Followers: Leaders and Followers move differently.

Instructions (Leader Perspective)
Leaders and Followers move differently. If you remember whisk-and-chasse, progressive chasse is quite similar. W-C, leaders move with left side forward and followers right side forward. In progressive chasse, it's the opposite.
Note: There are variations on progressive chasse. The general guideline is that the leader moves with his right side down line of dance.
Let us assume we begin by facing diagonal center.
1: Left foot drives forward down diagonal center. Heel-toe.
2: Right foot comes forward, but proceeds down line of dance.
And: Left foot closes with right foot.
3: Right foot goes back in direction of diagonal wall.
And: Left foot closes with right foot in preparation for next move.

A very rough approximation would be to imagine yourself tracing the diagonal, short side, and 2nd diagonal of a trapezoid. When doing this move, your diagonals won't be at perfect angles (and you wouldn't want them to be anyway).


Instructions (Follower Perspective)
The leader begins by facing diagonal center, so you'll be facing diagonal wall against line of dance.
1: Right foot drives backward. Toe-heel.
2: Left foot comes backward, but goes to the side, proceeding down line of dance.
And: Right foot closes with your left foot.
3: Left foot comes forward diagonal wall.
And: Right foot closes with left foot in preparation for next move.


Tips and Tricks
  • Distance: In order to cover more distance, when doing counts 1 and 3, do them more in the direction along line of dance rather than doing strict diagonals. This way, you'll cover more ground. Do note that doing this while keeping in sync with your partner will be more difficult, but the additional distance is worth it.


Advanced Concepts
  • Closing of Feet: The two closes in this move, the And of 2 and the And of 3 are very, very important. The first close is to ensure that you're ready to move to the next step. The 2nd close is an opportunity for you to ensure that you are in outside partner position. When you close your feet, your upper body should twist further into outside partner. Think of it as you entered this move in outside partner, you might've slipped out of it when doing this move, and this 2nd close is an opportunity to get back into perfect position.
