For Beginners

Grapevine

Everybody is familiar with this step. When the instructor is trying to find or fit a new move in an aerobic workout program, he/she will make the entire class do the grapevine. Your lead foot starts this move. It means if your right foot goes to the right and if the left foot is leading then the left foot goes to the left, your other foot crosses behind.
Step cross and step touch. Then you do the opposite thing, the second foot becomes the leading foot and the other one crosses behind.

Mambo

This is a very simple dance move. Step forth and back again and repeat the process with the same foot, until you get tired. Now repeat it with the other foot.

Kicks

Take a step with one foot and kick with the other one. Don't kick very high. Kicking somewhere between mid-calf height is good. Kicks are fun and your instructor will have a million ways to do it differently.

Leg Lifts

Stand on one leg and move your other leg out. Don't make it too high. It is a good exercise for legs, though it's not as much fun as kicks.
