Description[edit]

This step requires two dancers, usually one male and one female.

  1. The dancers stand side by side, right hip to right hip. Each dancer places his or her right hand on his/her partner's waist, on the partner's left hand side. The left arm is raised in fifth position.
  2. The dancers perform bihunets, turning in a circle around each other.

The direction of the step may be reversed. Dancers join left sides and raise their right arms into fifth position.
