   B. House Movement
       -When turning clockwise in the "House" or "Body" Movements, men 
        pivot on the left foot.



Note:  A fancier jig step can be performed by clicking the heel of the first 
       foot and then the flat of that same foot all for the first beat. 
      
            For example:  
                           click, down, two, three  
                           click, two, two, three   
                           click, three, two, three
