Change Steps are a development of the Box Step, and allow you to move easily around the dance-floor. Eventually the Change Steps allow you to change from a left turning Box Step to one that turns to the right.

DO IT ON THE FLOOR
Change Steps - Travelling
The Waltz is another Ballroom dance, and should, therefore, travel around the room in a counter-clockwise direction. To make this happen, the man should face the direction he wants to travel and just repeat the change steps over and over.
When you are finished travelling move into the box step, and rotate it until you are facing the next direction that you want to travel.
Make sure you always do an even number of change steps so that you finish with the man?s left foot and Lady's right foot ready to move.
Suggested combination: Change Steps, Change Steps, Box Step, Box Step.
