Stomp Off

The Stomp Off is often used as the start of a sequence, as it visibly and audibly emphasizes the lead-in beat. This is particularly useful when two partners have been dancing separately, and the leader wants to return to lead-and-follow dancing.

The move is often mirrored when performed by a follower, particularly when used as a link back in to partnered Lindy Hop because it puts the follower on the correct foot.
