Crossovers are classic moves from Balboa (dance).

The pattern is back - together - forward with a quick - quick - slow rhythm, or the down-hold rhythm.

Lead:

  1. - Step back left 45 degrees with left foot, leaving follow behind (allow arms to extend)
  2. - Step back with right foot, bringing feet together.
  3. - Step forward with left foot, crossing it over right foot, and bring follow back into original position.
  4. - Hold.
  5. - Step back right 45 degrees with right foot, leaving follow behind (allow arms to extend).
  6. - Step back with left foot, bringing feet together.
  7. - Step forward with right foot, crossing it over left foot, and bring follow back into original position.
  8. - Hold.

Crossovers can be done where both are going to the same side, or they are alternating.

Crossovers also include swivels and fall off the log.
