5d. Lady Jumps

For no particular reason the sequence starts with "Kicks" after which the back step is replaced with a lift/jump of the lady on counts 5 - 6. The backstep of any move could be replaced with the lift/jump. However, it would be difficult to lead unless the lady had some advanced notice.

If people have danced for a long time, different things such as pressure on the hand or the lowering of the hand may indicate a lead. Here, Bob lowers his left arm which could signal to Eva that she is to jump instead of backstep. If they were not familiar with each other, she would not know this.
