In each dance there is a ‘basic’ step pattern. In rumba this is called the Box Step. Imagine this Box Step as your idling step. For leaders it is the step you perform between other patterns of whilst you are thinking up your next move. For the followers it is the step you dance through whilst waiting patiently for the next step such as the Underarm Turn or the Rumba Walks.
Remember to keep your feet in contact with the floor throughout the whole Box Step! No stomping 🙂
