Zoppetto (Ballarino)

Full name of step in source: 
Rule 39. Zoppetto. p13v.

This Zoppetto is done (finding the body with even feet, or another way, as happens, as can occur in the galliard) lifting both the feet, one a little off the ground, and the other passing it in front, and doing as much as is required in the Mutanze, and this is the thing they will do, holding the one foot raised in front, as holding it similarly raised per fianco. From which efffect it has won the name Zoppetto, because you hold one of the feet raised in front, and go with the other raising itself, and jumping, as is proper [zoppicasse].
