The progressive chasse in quickstep is one of the most basic steps for this dance, and therefore it is usually one of the first steps you learn. It is most often preceded by the quarter turn. The count for the progressive chasse in quickstep is slow, quick, quick, slow. A slow is two beats and a quick is one beat. The instruction for each part of the step starts with the count (which beat of the music you are dancing on) and whether you should count it as slow or quick, then it tells you what you are doing on that beat.

 

Man's steps

  1.  Stand in closed dance position on your left foot with your right foot free, facing back to diagonal center. 
  2.  Count one, two (say “slow”--two beats); rotate slightly to the left and take a step back onto your right foot, knee bent. 
  3.  Count three (say “quick”--one beat); step to the side on the ball of your left foot. 
  4. http://www.lerntipp.at/tanzen/grafik/tanzen.jpgCount four (say “quick”); bring your right foot to your left and change weight to the ball of your right foot. Both legs should be fairly straight, with the knees slightly flexed. At this point, you should be facing the wall.
  5. Count five, six (say “slow”); step forward and slightly to the side on your left foot, stepping on the ball of the foot and then sinking softly onto the heel with a bent knee. Keep your left side forward so you end up in outside partner position. You should now be moving diagonal wall.
