Ball change is a dance move that consists of two steps: a partial weight transfer on the ball of a foot (placed e.g., behind), followed by a step on the other foot. This action has a syncopated feeling and counted &1, or &2, or a1, or a2, etc., i.e., the "ball" step splits off the end of the previous beat.
Kick ball change
Kick ball change is a dance move that consists of a kick followed by the ball change. Normally it uses a split-beat count: 1&2 or 1a2 and has a syncopated feeling, i.e., the accent of the motion is on "two".
The move consists of three distinct actions and can be started with any foot.
- "One": A kick or flick with the left foot. After the kick the foot naturally swings back
- "And": Slightly push off the floor by the ball of the left boot behind or by the right foot (partial weight transfer).
- "Two": Step with the right foot.
Details of each of the three actions vary depending on dance and styling preferences.
Heel ball change
Heel ball change is a dance move popular in line dances. On count "1" the heel touches the floor forward. On count "&2" the ball change is done starting with the same foot. The whole move is done in place.
