WALTZ

Can anyone describe an international step which our instructor called "the chair". It started out as a natural spin and both dancers stop and check with their inside leg and then come out to a reverse spin. I could be wrong in the description but if anyone has an idea of what I mean could they give me the name of the step.Our instructor at the time called the amalgamation of the three steps the chair but I am sure that is not a step. Thanks a bunch!

The chair is danced from promenade position using normal waltz timing 123 or SQQ in quickstep and foxtrot.

On 1: both partners step through with the inside foot with a checking action onto a bent knee. The flexing of the knees is similar to dancing a contracheck.

On 2: recover weight to back foot.

On 3: man RF back, lady LF fwd - slip pivot.

Alternatively,
On 3: man close RF to LF without weight, lady close LF to RF. Follow with same foot lunge.
