''Irst of all, walk as I have already
explained In the One-stop. Now,
raUo yourself up slightly on your
toes at each step, with tho legs a

and easily, and you know all there Is
to know about the Castle Walk. To
turn a corner you do not turn your
partner round, but keep walklnir her
backward In the same direction, loan
ing over slightly Just" enough to
make a graceful turn and keep the
balanco well a little like a blcycla
rounding a corner If you like. In
stead of walking along In a straight
line, after you havo rounded your
corner, you can continue in th same
slanting position, which will natural

Now, continue, and got your circle
smaller and smaller, until you are

VARIATIONS OF MODERN
DANCES
Left: The Waltz Walk. The gentleman walks at the side of his
partner, starting forward with the left foot, she back with the
right.
Center: The Eight Step. Part of the One Step. Both partners
are facing each other. The gentleman turns his partner out,
so that they are both facing forward, in the same direction.
They walk forward two-steps in the first part of the figure,
the gentleman on his left foot and his partner on her right.
Right: The Promenade. Position about the same as in Eight Step.
Both dancers facing in same direction. Gentleman walks for
ward with left foot, partner with right. At count, "and" start
heel step.
Htep. From the plain One Step, In
which both partners are facing each
other, the gentleman, who should bo
walking forward, turns the lady so
that she la facing In the same direc
tion as himself. It Is not necessary
to change the step or to stop walk
ing. They then walk forward two
steps on tho first step of the figure
the gentleman on his left and the
'lady on her right. Without loosening
the hold any more than la necessary,
they both turn on the third step,
making a revolution toward the In
side. After that the arms, which
hitherto have been extended straight
in iront of them, are at the back,
and they look over their elbows.
They then walk two mora steps, the
lady leading with the left foot, the
gentleman with the right foot. On
the third beat of tho music they turn

the step, which ey may continue

To learn this step correctly, a little
patience is necessary. I advise doing
It very slowly at first, so as to get
the exact position of the feet and
body. Do not let your partner walk
away from you. but keep opposite
each other as much as possible, and
do not turn abruptly. The figure
should be danced In a square. If you

loose v at the lady's back, so that
she can turn with ease.
The Lame Duck.
The lame duck la nearly always
danced to waits music, and haa be
come a very popular dance for those
who do not do the hesitation waltz,
but who prefer not to sit while
others danco it. In other words, It is
not only an attractive dance in Itself
but a very popular substitute for the
hesitation, about which I shall speak
at another time.
In doing the lame duck, the gentle
man, as usual, starts forward on his
left foot and does a half-alldtng dip
and half limp for two counts; then
tho right foot comes to his relief for
Just one count, nnd In tills way he,
as It were, shuffles forward, the
right knee straightening more or lest
and the loft knee remaining bent.
The lady's part Is naturally just tho
opposite. She starts back on her
right foot for two counts, and then
on her felt foot for one count. You
can keep the step up indefinitely,
rounding- corners and the like.
As this Is very tiring on one leg,
tho step can be changed by having
the gentleman hold his weight on
the left foot for threo counts, male.

wishes, and continuing backwaru,
making two counts on Tho right uml
one on the left. This has the
effect 6T changing the weight of the
body to tho other foot and causing
the aentleman to do the lady's step
and the lady the gentleman'. 1 feel
sure It la unnecessary to explain the
lady's part of all this. She naturally
Is at all times opposite her partner,
and does tho corresponding step to
his.
We see this dance done every day
at CasUe House, and nearly 50 per
cent of the dancers do It out of llmo
to the music. I often wonder whv
they chooso the walta. .If you are
not going to take any notice of tho
music, why have music at all? Some
one reHtlng would be much cheaper
and less noisy.
It is absolutely wrong .to dance this
way; you may dance str'ctly against
time or strictly In time, but to dance
regardless of music when the music
la being plajed Is criminal.
One last word about the lame
duck. If you do It smoothly It is
pleasing to the onlookers and fo
yourself; if you exaggerate It you
loin all the duek and It Is simply
lame.
The Wind Up.
This step, while very simple, Is hard
to explain. The lady back awav
from tho man a few Hteps until her
risht arm and his left are out
stretched at arm's length In front of
them. The gentleman "turns to
left" hi the came spot, while the
lady walks aiound him at the left
side until she conies face to face
with him again. Milch w'nda her
right arm around his neck. In de
scribing this step It logeg Its charm
but if It Is properly done tt looks
very pretty. As soon sg the. part
ner are face to faco ac;aln they let
go their hands and take the same
position, with the arms as In tho
start of the danco.
The Promenade.
The position is tho same as In the
figure eight of the one step. Tho
man. who should be walk'ng for
ward, turns the ladv so that she I
faring In the same direction as him
self. They then walk forward, the
man with his left and the lady with
her right, one. two and three. On
the "and" the man steps forwatd on
his left he. and on the third count
tho right foot shifts forward to tho
hack of the left heel, taking the
weight, so you see there nre icnlly
four steps to three counts like thl
one. two and three; left foot,
right, left-right. Thl step can be
repeated as many times aa desired.
The Waltr Walk.
There is very little to explain In
this; In fact, the title Itself I the
explanation, but don't pass It by as
being too easy to receive any consid
eration. True, it Is simply walking
to waltz time; but It Is very difficult
to do this and have It look like any
thing. It Is something like stand
ing still on the stage; that takes a
good actor.' and walking to waltz
time takes a good dancer. In these
modem dances the plain walk Is the
best step to begin with, and It la nl
ways very useful while you are
"thinking of a good one." In dan
cing the lady may go a few Heps
hack while the gentleman takes the
corresponding number of steps for
ward, or the gentleman may turn
and walk In the same direction aa
the lady. Thla walking was done
