Full name of step in source: 
Rule 1. Alzata de Piedi. p23

Raising the foot

Because the first movement in dancing is to raise the foot; therefore having considered well I note in this first rule [??]: to do this said alzata de piede Beginning with the left foot behind, about half a palm from the right, as seen in the figure, you must lift the said left from the ground, and raise in front by the right, about half a palm, and you can also raise the said left per fianco, about half a palm, and a little more, away from the right. And this can be done with the right, that is, is the said left is found behind?, and it has received this name from the raising of the foot from the ground.
