In International style, the feet are a lot more "grounded" (constant pressure) than in American style. It's not good to see feet "loose" without tone under the knee.
Cha Cha Alemana to Closed Hip Twist:
- step 8, count "4", Lady's LF fwd step, this is already facing Man.
- count "&", lock step (with ball of RF, not just toes, L leg should still be straight, a bit awkard feeling)
- count "1": LF fwd, small step - don't start turning to Man at this step yet, step fwd, not toward Man.
- count "&": Wait for Man's signal to turn on count "&".
- Turn should always be sharp (even when music is slow).
- Closed Hip Twist:
- count "4": This is pressed with RF fwd (it's really a fwd step, throw L hip back. hip should not be flat), knee bent.
- count "&": LF closed to RF, both knees bent.
- count "1": RF to side, slightly back, still facing Man at this moment.
- count "&": turn 1/2 to R.
Cha Cha Closed Hip Twist to Alemana:
- Alemana step 3-5 is a lock step passing Man, then a sharp turn to do step 6, LF fwd to Man's L side.
- Lady's steps are the whether the follow is cHockey Stick or Alemana. The way Man can give hint it how his LH holds Lady's RH.
