Footwork Variation of the Fortnight #77!

This fortnight’s variation is Kick It! &3&4

Footwork Variation of the Fortnight #76!

This fortnight’s variation is Slip Step!

This slippy variation requires the follower to come in on 3–but don’t panic you’ll still have time to get round! (and its a good skill to work on)

If your shoes aren’t slippy enough for this variation check out our recent Cat’s Corner post about shoes to find out about all your shoe options!
