The first move is called the step out. Here, you easily learn a simple move that looks good and serves as a great warm up step. Here you learn to incorporate your hands and uppper body and transform a basic stepping out motion into a hot move that can be done to any beat. Smoothing out your motions, make this move more casual or sensual. Looks great whether you are grooving to the beat in a group or with a girl.

Once you get the basic movement you can then incorporate different hand and leg motions to spice up the move. The instructors show you each of their particular version of this move, so you can choose which most fits your style. This is a perfect high energy move to do when you are dancing close to a girl, but not yet grinding.
The third move is called the jump shift. This move will teach you to incorporate a little bounce in your step. The name is decieving as you are not actually jumping, yet rather shifting from one side to the next while bending your knees into each side. Putting your arms into it allows you to make it more playful or serious – your call. This is another great move to do when you are dancing with a girl.

This is a perfect move to walk through the club with, especially dancing up to a group of girls, which is a grey area for most guys.
