The 6 step is one of the most popular footwork movements when people think about break dancing. The 6 step sets a strong foundation for most basic footwork movements and is altered and evolved to create new footwork patterns such as 4 Step and 3 Step.

The 6 Step is a circular pattern that uses 6 separate steps. You can travel in a clockwise or a counterclockwise direction. You can think of the 6 step as having 2 parts.

Part 1: 3 steps to get to the back
Part 2: 3 steps to get the front

Since the 6 step is just a pattern that repeats, you can technically change direction at any given step of the 6 Step. To change your direction, you will bring your foot back to the step it was previously at.

Tips for changing the direction of your 6 Step:

  • Whatever foot just stepped will be stepping again back to where it previously came from
  • You can think of a direction change as reversing any given step
  • You can change the direction you are traveling at any given step
