BalancÚ Rocking step. This step is very much like a pas de valse and is an alternation of balance, shifting the weight from one foot to the other.
For a balancÚ to the right, start in fifth position. On count of 1-2-3, right foot goes out to the side and the weight is transferred to it (1). Immediately bring left foot behind right and and transfer the weight to the ball of the left foot while rising up on it (2). Put your weight back on the right foot flat on the floor (not raised up) (3). A balancÚ to one side is almost always followed by a balancÚ to the other side. BalancÚs can also be done to the front and back or turning.
