How To Do A Step Ball Change

How To Do A Step Ball Change

This simple dance step can be well used both in jazz dancing and tap dancing. Just be sure to use opposite leg and arm motions.

I'm going to show you how to do a step ball change. Now, we're going to use the right leg first. You step forwards.

On the ball of your foot, you travel the left leg, then step, ball, change. So, that's step, ball, change. Then you can do it on the left.

I'll repeat. Step, ball, change and on the left, step, ball, change. As you can see, I've got opposite arms swinging here.

You want to make sure that you always have the opposite arm to leg. Never have the same arm as leg. It doesn't work like that so you want to make sure that you have the opposite arm to leg.

Ball, change, and step, ball, change. So, the step ball change is used often in jazz. You can also do a tap step ball change which is used more often in tap.

You do this by brushing forward, then stepping, then ball, change. That is tap, step, ball, change. I'll show you again.

So, you brush the leg forward, step onto it, and ball, change, chasing the left then the right. Tap. Step.

Ball. Change. I'll do this a little faster.

Tap, step, ball, change. Tap, step, ball, change. And again, tap, step, ball, change.

Tap, step, ball, change. That's how to do a step ball change and a tap step ball change. .
