The Foot Action describes which part of the foot is in contact with the floor (with or without weight) during the execution of the step and how it is placed.
In the chart only the starting contact and the ending contact points of the foot are indicated.
The intermediate points of contact are implicit.
There are nine codified foot contact points.
The figures below indicate these positions together with the most common examples of where these are used.
(e.g. The beginning or the end of a normal Rolling action of the Foot)
(e.g. Used at the highest point of rise)
(e.g. The highest contact without weight mainly used for aesthetic lines)
(e.g. When the entire foot is placed directly onto the floor)
(e.g. When the entire foot is placed on the floor during a Rolling action)
(e.g. Any stage of a Rolling action between Flat and Toe). Note: The Foot Action Ball covers all degrees of flexion of the foot from when the Heel is just off the floor until one degree less than "Toe".
Inside Edge of Toe
(e.g. When the Toe is placed on the floor with an internal lateral flexion of the ankle)
nside Edge of Foot
(e.g. When the Foot is placed on the floor with an internal lateral flexion of the ankle)
Outside Edge of Toe
(e.g. When the Toe is placed on the floor with an external lateral flexion of the ankle)
