The 6 step sets a strong foundation for most basic footwork movements and is altered and evolved to create new footwork patterns such as 4 Step and 3 Step. The 6 Step is a circular pattern that uses 6 separate steps. You can travel in a clockwise or a counterclockwise direction. You can think of the 6 step as having 2 parts. Part 1: 3 steps to get to the back Part 2: 3 steps to get the front Tips for mastering the 6 step: -Let your legs have a slight bend vs. straightening your legs -When you hook in the front make sure you place your hand forward so your legs have a pathway to travel backward -When stepping back to the corner from a hook, think about pointing your knee in towards the center to help flow into the next step -Only use both hands on the floor when you get to the all 4’s position/frog position -When taking your first step to the front from your frog position, imagine there is an imaginary line that your hand are on and step slightly past that line so your foot is in front of your arms when coming to the front make sure you step far enough so your body is in front of your arm by "step in hook” step -Try sitting on the opposite butt cheek of the foot that does the “step in hook” (right foot steps in, sit on left butt cheek) -Stay on your toes vs. allowing your foot to be flat footed Think about altering the feet you step with (right, left, right, left…) -Keep your chest tall in the front and only allow your chest to drop towards the floor during the all ’s position If you like this video and would like more tutorials like this, make sure to “Like” and “Share” the video and leave a “Comment” below =] Want Mirrored Versions Of All Of My Tutorials? - Join My Patreon Community ➜ https://www.patreon.com/Darrenrwong For More Breakin' Tutorials, Tips, Courses and Private Lessons ➜ https://www.darrenrwong.com Get More Great Tutorials - Subscribe: ➜ https://goo.gl/TyxRKm Music: Tonez&Re-C - Kyoto by @TONEZPRO (OFFICIAL) https://soundcloud.com/tonez-pro Creative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported— CC BY 3.0 http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Buddha by Kontekst https://soundcloud.com/kontekstmusicCreative Commons — Attribution 3.0 Unported— CC BY 3.0 **Disclaimer** These tutorials are meant to help spread the knowledge I have been fortunate enough to come across throughout my years of dancing.
