This fortnight’s variation is The Pony!

A new twist on a modern classic!

You can take inspiration for footwork variations from just about anywhere. Here’s one based on a dance move that some might remember from the 1960s (or the 80s).

Footwork Variation of the Fortnight #63!

This fortnight’s variation is The Shunt!

If a slide and a slip-slop had a baby it would probably look a bit like this!
