SiLD: Pan Cross Steps & Pan Cross Switch Steps

This article is a near-identical modification of the article on Walkup Cross Steps and Walkup Cross Switch Steps. This has been done because the moves are closely related and highly similar, with very little more that can be added about the here-discussed.


Comparison

Pan Cross Steps (PCS) are a one-step Peter Pan blended with a Cross Step, whereas Pan Cross Switch Steps (PCSS) are a blend of a one-step 'Pan with a Cross Switch Step.  PCS and PCSS differ mainly by (1) the initial carve orientation of the first foot-step, and (2) by stance orientation PCS end in the same stance, and PCSS end in a stance opposite to the initial.

Figure 01


Both moves are essentially the same except for beginning Toeside and Heelside. They each have 8 moves depending on doing them normally or in reverse, and on stance orientation. So the basic PCS and PCSS in Figure 01 represent their respective 7 variants listed in the chart below. This genus of moves is works similarly to Walkup Cross Steps and Walkup Cross Switch Steps. 

Note in the chart below that, for instance, a Pan Cross Step’s reversed version is called a “Reverse Cross Step Pan” because it is a blending of a Reverse Cross Step followed by a one-step Peter Pan.

Extension

The PCS and PCSS can be modified just like Cross Step and a Cross Switch Step respectively, because they end like them. So, if there’s a Cross Step Sexchange, then there’s a Pan Cross Step Sexchange; a Cross Step Pan and a Pan Cross Step Pan - and so on. Also like Cross Steps, the last two foot-steps can carve [TS,TS], [HS,HS], [TS,HS], or [HS,TS]. For the Reverse variants, this applies to the first two foot-steps.

As is especial to moves that are similar to Cross Steps, they can be blended in various ways with 180 Step and Cross Step moves.


Peace!
