STEP DEMO
Left & Right Rocks are another intimate step that are easy to lead and follow and look great as well.
The exit from the Left & Right Rocks is also used for the Quick Underarm Turn and the Cross-Overs, so it is important to feel comfortable with this step before moving on to those.

Left & Right Rocks
The final three steps in our Rumba syllabus, starting with the Left & Right Rocks, are linear steps, as opposed to turning steps. This means that the steps move from side to side on an imaginary line, and you should try to dance your respective parts relative to that line to avoid confusion.
Suggested Combination: Box Step, Left and Right Rocks, Box Step.
DO IT WITH STYLE
Video 1: You can give the Rocks an intimate or more showy feel, depending on your mood.
Video 2: A foot trick for the men to help lead out of the Rocks more smoothly.
