Foot to the Side (Point, Step) on 5 6 rather than triple step

The "Point - Step" is very similar to the touch step except that the "Point" in "Point-Step" is more of a reach than the "Touch" in Touch Step".

This could actually be led, or perhaps suggested, by the gent if he lowers himself and the ladies arm starting immediately after count 4.

As with all of the 5 - 6 variations, the lady is free to do whatever she wishes so long as she doesn't pull the gent off balance and so long as she steps forward with her right on count 1.

The "Point - Step" could be substituted liberally for the triple step. A common place to "Point - Step" is on the first triple step of the left side pass.
