Hola peeps, I have recently been taught a figure that commences with a sidestep to the right for the woman, which I match with a sidestep to the left in mirror-image (it’s quite a simple figure, but that is not the point). About 50% of the time, this first step occurs as expected. But equally often, instead of doing the sidestep to the right with her right leg, the woman moves with her left leg, swiveling around behind her to step to the right. When this happens my teacher recommends treating it as a back ocho and proceeding from there, for example doing another back ocho on the other side, or going into any other crossfoot-system move (and abandoning the initially intended figure). But I am not really quick-thinking enough to do this if I don’t know it’s coming. Is there a way to know in advance whether she will do a “normal” right sidestep or swivel round with the other foot and do a back ocho, giving me time to plan my response? Or do I just have to develop my ability to react quicker? Thank you!
