You should remember that a step is defined as a movement from one location to another so the actual transition is the step rather than a pose. Keeping this in mind will allow for fluidity.
The carpet has a grid which you can use as a reference. I also used a guitar (in its case) as a reference point. You will begin and end facing the guitar as I am in the picture.
First, establish a reference point and get in push-up position. Again, a step is defined as a movement of the foot from one position to the next position.
Step 1: First Step
Bring your leading foot below your back foot to cross over to the other side. While moving your foot, you will want to lift your opposite hand so that you're balancing on the leading hand.
Make sure your leg is fairly straight and you are resting on the side of your foot. (Not the ankle!)
Step 2: Second Step
Pull your back foot forward and towards your leading knee so that you lead leg curls and shift your weight to your back leg once again.
Step 3: Third Step
I apologize for awkward pictures. Steps are meant to be presented in fluid motion. Holding each pose is actually counter-intuitive to learning how to feel the music and move with the beat.
Swing your leading leg over and switch hands simultaneously.
Step 4: Fourth Step
Your back leg should now be in front and bent while your leading foot is planted to the ground. Make sure the lateral side of the back foot is on the ground! (once again, not the ankle!)
Step 5: Fifth Step
And extend the leading foot straight back.
Step 6: Final Step
With lots of practice, you can gain speed and fluidity, accuracy and precision. Add some music and time your steps to the beat.
It might be beneficial to check out other dancers for ideas for transitioning into the 6 Step. Transitions are very illustrative of each dancer's style and can be a crucial point to capture audience attention while showing a bit of yourself. Check out
