A few suggestions for using the rocking step.

Shepherd's Crook - 72 bar strathspey for 3 people, the step can be used for the second set of highland setting.

Eightsome Reel - The lady's solo in the middle. (I prefer to perform my Martha Graham interpretive dance of the wind...someone else has done the Macarena.)

Glasgow Highlanders - spice it up after the first few times. It is impressive to observe the lady remain in one spot and the man "courting" her by dancing the Glasgow Highland setting step. (Also, try the bunny hop. It works great with the tune....)

In my personal opinion, the rocking step is suitable for any position where a highland step is required, mainly because it is less strenuous for the dancer, plus trying to do high cuts in a ball gown....not attractive.

See you on the dance floor,
