The Break

I pulled this definition from, but it applies to non-ballroom dances as well.

Break: A unit of two steps where the second step is taken in exactly the opposite direction from the first.

That description wasn't much, will. So maybe a few folks could chime in and help describe some of these breaks (just the ones I can think of -- there are others, I'm sure :D ) Just so you can get an idea what the definition actually means. :D

fifth position break
open break
crossover break
side break
back break
forward break
outside partner break
