Bar 1: In the first count of 8, the boy puts his left foot forward, the girl her right foot; the ball of the extended foot gently touches the floor while the weight remains on the other leg. On the third count, the extended foot is returned to the starting position.

Bar 2: The same movement is performed with the other foot.

Bar 3 - 4: who complete clockwise turns using four turn steps.

This is repeated until the music stops playing.


For beginners, it is recommended to do only one turn with 4 steps, concentrating on achieving the correct position needed for the next set at the end of the 4th bar.

This dance was noted several times in Austria and Bavaria. There exist a lot of variations, like the one of the Ramsau, a place in Styria on the foot of the Dachstein.
