Time Step Challenge

After having danced at least five steps of the Time Step, the Man may initiate a challenge to the Lady by dancing a Spot Turn or (Silver) a Cuban Break. Due to the lack of a physical lead, the Lady will not be able to respond immediately, and will observe the Man dance a Spot Turn or a Cuban Break, but continue herself to dance the Time Step. After the Man has completed his Spot Turn or Cuban Break and the Lady has danced her Time Step, the Lady will respond by mimicking what the Man danced, while the Man now watches her and dances the Time Step.
