Tips for this move:
Chasse and shuffle are often used synonymously, but the basic difference is a shuffle moves forward/backward and a chasse moves right/left. Unlike with shuffles, you can make larger steps in a chasse, but keep in mind that because there is still a half-step in this move, you will need to be light on your feet – you are squeezing 3 steps into 2 beats – so stay on your toes (it’s ok to flat foot the last step though).
